Mike Jackson Artist

Original paintings by Mike Jackson

Born in 1962 to a working class Manchester family, Mike Jackson grew up in a warm family surrounding with honest values. He left school with few qualifications but with a great love of art. However, Mike was encouraged to learn a trade so 'he would always have something to fall back on' and so he became a Butcher. After a wide and varied career path, Mike Jackson eventually pursued the artistic path and became a Graphic Designer. He bought the various computer packages along with an Apple Mac and taught himself. He was lucky enough to gain access into the Commercial Art world and stayed there, learning from mistakes and increasing in knowledge and experience for about 12 years. Meantime, he was developing his illustration skills and learning different Medias until he felt he was good enough to sell some of his paintings.

For years after that Mike Jackson concentrated on perfecting his watercolour skills and felt that this was the path for him. was quite He was a successful watercolour artist for many years and was pushed by a friend who has a gallery in Somerset to try out acrylics. This he did, and to his surprise he absolutely loved them. Mike Jackson had no formal training in art so had to learn by his own mistakes. He is married with two fabulous children and one grandson, who all keep his feet on the ground. He moved to Somerset in 1999 which was fabulous for his artistic inspiration, as the colours and the local sounds of the country really help to free up his mind.

Mike Jackson was greatly inspired by LS Lowry, influenced mainly because he was a friend of his Grandfather. His ideas come mainly when he is out driving, and thinking about quirky little images to paint.
