Emily Jackson paintings for sale. Margaret River Artist Emily Jackson draws inspiration from the local flora and fauna and uses a variety of mediums and methods to document it. Her very intricate drawings are so delicate and patiently executed using a Drypoint Etching technique. Emily has completed art studied in the UK and Margaret River and also runs a successful Graphic Design business.

Through my artwork I portray the natural world of Western Australia. My art pays tribute to, and celebrates the living world that nurtures my creativity. This world sustains my creative impulse, it imbues me with joy and I feel very much part of it, not separate, but intimately connected. My art is about this connection. The abstract visual landscapes of my work are location, date and time specific. They capture the living mood of the place, a vignette, a moment in time and place. The aim is to bring the viewer into that moment, place, with all its wonderful nuances, light, plants, animals, landscape - to feel that place, a memory hidden in consciousness.

CURRICULUM VITAE

Emily Jackson – Artist Biography

My work tends to focus on the local environment and its unique flora and fauna which I explored on a daily basis. I’m intrigued with the diversity of the Australian landscape.

My influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel and experience around me. I use a variety of mediums of printmaking to create images about my local environment, which is more and more becoming fragile and endangered.
Predominantly I create my work using ‘drypoint’ which is an intaglio technique where the ink is rubbed into incised lines and wiped away from the surface of the plate, so that only the lines are printed. Intaglio plates can only be printed in an etching press. It’s a completely non-toxic form of printmaking and is like using a pen without the ink – literally, drawing with a dry point. My final pieces are often achieved by using a numerous plates with a mixture of techniques.
The appeal of printmaking for me is that it can be spontaneous and highly technical. A combination of techniques can produce endless results. I find it rewarding to create something unique on a blank sheet where nothing existed before. It is always full of surprises.
Emily Jackson now resides in Margaret River and works from her home studio. Sharing her working time between printing making and her graphic design business.
