Sparkles n' Sawdust Studio is an independent Art Studio that is locally owned and operated by Halifax based Artist, Jacquelyn Miccolis.
Jacquelyn has many years of experience working in the Halifax arts industry, with a background in business management.
Her passion for art began at an early age and has continued to grow over the years, due to it's many therapeutic benefits. She believes that creativity is a human quality that exists within every single one of us. Sometimes we just need encouragement - to help unleash it!
She considers herself to be a nature enthusiast, with a love for animals, botanicals and the ocean. With a zest for life, she believes in living a full and colorful existence! Every workshop that is offered at Sparkles n' Sawdust Studio, she created with joy and is a true labour of love.
On March 1st 2019, Jacquelyn opened the doors to Sparkles n' Sawdust Shop, which became locally known, as "the little shop with a lot of heart." As a heart-driven entrepreneur, her primary focus was to support non-established Artists and those facing barriers.
After identifying the challenges of operating a shop that wasn't located on ground level, she decided to restructure her business. As an active member of the local arts community, she recognized the need for a recreational art facility for adults. Through a lot of hard work and determination, she transformed the space into a beautiful art studio. Still operating with a lot of heart and continuing to spread the joy of creativity!
