Yeshe Jackson Fine Art
Seascapes from Santa Cruz, California by Yeshe Jackson
I was born in a teepee in the Santa Cruz mountains, and grew up about as close to nature as a kid can in these modern times. I currently reside in the city of Santa Cruz with my beautiful girlfriend and our dog Izzy. I love to spend time outdoors, hiking in the redwoods or along the shore of the Monterey bay. Nothing gives me more inspiration to create new art than an excursion into the wild.
Art has always been a big part of my life, but once I tried oil painting I knew that I had found my true calling. I love everything about it - the buttery feel, the rich and vibrant colors, and the tremendously versatile working properties.
My paintings are inspired by nature. I find the ever changing colors and moods to be a constant source of ideas. These pieces of art are meant to be an homage to the beauty of the natural world, and are created in a loose and impressionistic way that feels much more like writing poetry than creating a detailed description of a place.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my art, or if you would like to discuss a commission. And be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with my latest adventures! Thank you so much!
