Hi there! I’m Jackie Lea Shelley, and I like you already. Probably.
I am an Idealist, Mama, and Warrior Princess. I am not an aardvark, but I am an artist. I have been painting in watercolors for over 15 years. Every portrait I create is done with intense love, with a deep desire to show other people how beautiful they are and how beautiful is their love for each other. Also, with plenty of coffee. My hobbies are being obnoxious on the internet, researching bikinis during winter rainstorms, and making beautiful things that get me so excited that I forget to eat. Boobs and spreadsheets are two of my favorite things.
I also like chocolate pie, sunsets, pianos, and very small humans and cats. I love my offspring like anything. I’m a geek, I overthink everything, forget to finish most of the things I start, and like Wednesdays.
I collect adventures and beautiful people. I have mad ADHD, occasionally debilitating social anxiety, arithmophobia, and am probably one of the most loyal people you will ever meet.
I make art that helps save lives.
I love what I do, and win at all the things.
Your jobs are very nice.
Dear Jackie – Thank you so much for choosing San Francisco Suicide Prevention as a beneficiary of your amazing 100 Unicycles project. I first got involved with SFSP as a crisis line volunteer in 1995 and then a board member since 1997. I’m glad that Brian Byrne and Mike Dahn are among your friends. I know SFSP helps dozens of people everyday to find a way to hang on and eventually realize their pure path. Likewise, your courageous honesty will inspire many others to have hope and remember their reason to live. What a wonderful way to support SFSP and raise awareness. Blessings and peace to you!
I somehow just saw this! Thank you so much for the compliment. It’s been an amazing project, and I can’t wait to raise the rest of the funds. So grateful for everyone’s support. Nice to meet!
