Kurt Jackson

Kurt Jackson MA (Oxon) DLitt (Hon) RWA, was born in 1961 in Blandford, Dorset. He graduated from St Peter's College, Oxford with a degree in Zoology in 1983. While there, he spent most of his time painting and attending courses at Ruskin College of Art, Oxford. On gaining his degree he travelled extensively and independently, painting wherever he went. He travelled to the Arctic alone and hitched across Africa with his wife, Caroline. They moved to Cornwall in 1984 where they still live and work. They have three grown children, Seth, Zinzi and Chloe and three young grandchildren, Thelonious, Taya and Maisie. A dedication to and celebration of the environment is intrinsic to both his politics and his art and a holistic involvement with his subjects provides the springboard for his formal innovations. Jackson's practice involves both plein air and studio work and embraces an extensive range of materials and techniques including mixed media, large canvases, printmaking and sculpture.
