Painting - Acrylics/Encaustic
I am JoAnna Jackson an Acrylic/mixed media artist. I was born in Atlanta, Georgia and did not start painting until 1993. I have always been very "ARTSY" but had not really found my niche until painting. I also love fiber arts and altering clothing and trims. I have recently been juried in Encaustics , which is painting with melted beeswax. In this process I collage with papers, fabric and found objects in the melted wax and add layer upon layer of wax embedding objects in each layer. I am currently residing in Louisville, Kentucky with my husband and daughter.
I LOVE COLOR and I LOVE to make people happy. I try to put the two things together in my paintings. I like to paint BIG and Bold and with lots of color. When you look at my paintings it is hard NOT to smile.Whether you enjoy flowers, animals or children I try to capture the personality of the moment.
I am a juried member of the Louisville Artisans Guild. I also have also been juried into the Shelby Art On Main Gallery in Shelbyville, KY. Have shown at various galleries and exhibits. I have also won several ribbons at the Kentucky State Fair.
I hope you will enjoy my art as much as I enjoy creating it.
