Collection: Carrie Jackson

Carrie is a painter, collage artist, and high school art teacher. Her lifelong love and respect for art eventually led her to a BFA from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia including time studying in Cortona, Italy. She then received a MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design. 

A native of Southwest Georgia, Carrie has spent her life adoring both the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. Long before moving to Fairhope, AL, she developed a fascination with the native coastal plants and animals she so often uses as subject matter. Finding it nearly impossible to walk away from a painting without adding a special touch of collage, she embellishes surface texture through layered papers, fabrics, and other natural materials. This process of adding texture creates subtle nuances and captivating details.
