David Jackson is a Wirral based-artist – he began painting in 2005 after retiring from a lengthy career in engineering. He was initially drawn to watercolour due to the contrast with the rigid world of mechanical design. This interest quickly expanded into various other media which include acrylics, pastels and inks. Typical subject matter ranges from local landscapes in watercolour to sketched life studies to more abstract-form painting using vibrant acrylics. He has no preferred medium or subject focus and employs a blend of traditional and contemporary styles in his work depending on the subject matter.
David Jackson: “I enjoy working in a fast, free-flowing manner in order to avoid overthinking a painting and to allow the composition of a piece to grow as organically as possible.” He has exhibited and sold work at venues throughout the Wirral. His work has been on show at the Williamson Art Gallery for the last 8 years.
Although not formally trained, he has run adult art sessions at numerous venues around the Wirral and most recently from his own home studio. Main influences include works by Turner, Monet and Picasso. David is happy to undertake commissions.
