Antici-painting spring

If you’ve ever taken notice of the beautiful murals on the windows of the pool at SEAPARC, we’d like to introduce you to their creator, 27-year-old Jacklyn Evans. Working at SEAPARC for 11 years, she has been painting for only the past four. While she says she has no formal training, she admits to being tremendously inspired by Disney.

“I love anything Disney,” she says. The first cartoon character she ever drew was Sponge Bob. “I had a thing for Sponge Bob,” she laughs. Her biggest challenge is having people see the work-in-progress. Her end result is always two-sided, finished from both sides of the glass. Since she paints from the inside, the exterior gets the finished look first. And most of the onlookers are watching from the inside.
