Artist’s Statement

Safety and magic rarely intersect. I am often cautioned against hiking alone, but I never lack company when in the presence of saguaros, hoodoos, mountains, trees, and bees. The moments I spend by myself in nature are as important as the paint I use to coat my brushes, filling me with beauty, inspiration, wonder, and peace. Back in the studio, photographs never quite capture the enchantment or grandeur of my experience. My personal challenge as an artist is to create scenes that convey my perception of the world and transport the viewer to that magnificent moment made permanent.

About the Artist

Teressa Lynn Jackson was born in Enid, Oklahoma, and grew up in the Louisville, Kentucky, suburb of New Albany, Indiana. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from Louisville’s Bellarmine University in 1998. Following graduation, Teressa spent a summer studying Byzantine mosaics and frescoes in Italy with the State University of New York. Prior to returning to her creative roots, Teressa enjoyed a fulfilling 15-year career in the Louisville-area not-for-profit sector.

In fall 2016, Teressa sold her home and most of her possessions and spent a year traveling, connecting with beautiful places and experiences and using those adventures to inform and relaunch her lifelong need to create. In late 2017, Teressa and her husband made their new home in the Sonoran Desert. Ms. Jackson’s work has been shown in a number of juried and non-juried art exhibitions over the past twenty-five years, and she has been the recipient of several awards for her artwork.

Watercolor Oasis • Agua Caliente Ranch House Gallery Exhibition • 3/21/2020-4/22/2020

With a goal to inspire others to explore the raw beauty of nature, artist Teressa Jackson captures the charm and color of the desert experience through stylized realism.


Watercolor Oasis

I was honored to be selected to show my artwork in a solo exhibition at Agua Caliente Park’s Ranch House Gallery in Tucson, Arizona, from March 21 to April 22, 2020. The title of this exhibition will be Watercolor Oasis. I have 88 linear feet of gallery space to fill. I was one of ten artists to be selected to show at this venue in 2020.

This page features the artwork I am reserving for that exhibition. Additional pieces will be included as they are completed and as my show nears. Of course, seeing these paintings in person in a gallery space is far different from looking at them on a computer screen, so please plan to visit my show, too, if you are able!
