My name is Ruth Jackson and I am a self-taught artist whose aim is to become an active member in the art community, showing my art alongside other gifted individuals.
I believe that art is a continual learning curve that requires discipline and hard work. I create because it is my passion and I love the idea that I can imagine something in my mind and make it a reality. I also love that the end product is never the same as the initial thought. I believe in working through the rough middle stages of a piece until I am satisfied with the final product.
One of my biggest influences in the art world has been Robert Genn, a BC artist who passed away in 2014. Each of his paintings are beautiful, unique, and share a common theme of Canadian landscape.
