Mary Jackson NEAC RWS


Artist Statement

Mary Jackson is a painter of figurative, landscape and still life subjects in oil and watercolour. Working away from the studio has always been an integral part of her painting. This approach revitalises her perception and images which are then taken back to the studio. All the gathered material is then worked out in her paintings. She is passionate about light and tone and  always has a sketchbook to hand. The highlights of her career were Artist in Residence for Glyndebourne, Garsington and the ENO Operas and Artist on board Thorry Gunnersen’s Yacht, Tilting at Windmills, recording Five Tours, Sailing in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
