Mary Jackson is a painter of figurative landscape and still life subjects in oil and watercolours. Working away from the studio is an integral part of her paintings. Whether travelling or in the countryside, this approach revitalizes her perception and images which are then taken back to the studio where the gathered material is worked out in her painting.
Mary has a varied and successful career encompassing painting, book illustration, work with the ENO and residencies with both Glyndebourne and Garsington Operas. Her paintings have been exhibited at the Royal Academy, The Discerning Eye, Singer & Friedlander and the Mall where they have won many prizes, notably the Critic’s prize at the New English and the Thomas Agnew Prize. Her public collections include those of John Lewis, Garsington Opera and the 2nd Regiment, Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers. She is represented in the private collection of Lady Getty and Thorry Gunnersen ME.
