In particular, her paintings consist of many thin layers of oil paint, bronze powder, acrylic paint, resin, and other mixed medias on wood panel. Thus, the numerous translucent layers create the illusion of depth. And the trees and plants occupy different locations in the foreground and background. According to the artist, she gets inspiration from plant study. In addition, from her daily walks in the neighborhood, the study of botanical illustrations, as well as her knowledge of plants and their life cycles.
Ivy Jacobsen is a permanent participant of art exhibitions, which took place mostly in California. In 2014 the artist moved to Santa Cruz, California with her husband and their two children.
