JACQUELINE DREAGER was born in Los Angeles, and grew up in Malibu,CA. When she was ten years old she would ride her bike to Muscle Beach. Her father was a special effects expert so her early years were never dull. She spent a lot of time making things with her father in the garage and using all types of materials; this had a major effect on her. She studied locally at the Otis Art Institute and then at the Institute of Experimental Printmaking in Santa Cruz, CA. She has had solo exhibits in Los Angeles and Chicago. Other public commissions are a sculpture garden for a recycling center in Los Angeles's San Fernando Valley, and as a design team member in planning a pocket park in downtown LA’s South Park area. In 1992 she got a Cultural Affairs grant and in 1990 she worked in the LACE/Homeless Outreach Program as Artist in Residence. She lives in Montecito Heights and works in downtown Los Angeles.
