“Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly,
laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.
Twenty years from now you’ll be more disappointed with the things you
didn’t do than the ones you did…Explore. Dream. Discover.” —Mark Twain
Chloe Summer Jackman-Buitrago
Hiya! I’m Chloe and I’m a sassy San Franciscan with attitude. On any given day you’ll catch me sportin’ cheetah, stripes, turquoise or gold (sometimes all at once) rocking my #FrecklesnFro and dancing on the job. Did I mention I’m a native? Native San Franciscan, that is.
As you’ve probably deduced, I was on the road to becoming a Lawyer or Detective while living it up at UC Santa Barbra, when I got sidetracked by those damn beautiful sunsets and discovered I had mad skillz behind the camera.
Next step, graduate, freak out about being a grown up and spend all my grad money traveling in pursuit of my new found art, landscapes; only landscapes never pay their invoices and can be a little moody. In conclusion, Ansel Adams got there first and has a knack for charming the pants off any still life. Whereas my gift is charming people…with their pants on, usually.
Who knew how deep this love affair would go? My mother always said, “I could do anything and attain any goal I aspired towards ” I just never imagined my work, my passion, and my art could all be the same thing and be SO awesome.
