jackson snowy-streamWe enjoyed a visit today from oil painter and pastelist Rebekkah Jackson. Raised on the eastern plains of Colorado, she went to live overseas in 1985. In the 1990s she was able to combine her love of teaching and art while volunteering working with Bosnian refugee children. Here she found that one of the only ways to reach traumatized children was through art. Now, back home in the States, she is enjoying plein air painting and travelling with her husband, Frank. jackson"I am now at a point in my life where I have more time to devote to painting and am enjoying the camaraderie of other Colorado painters." Rebekkah has had pastels juried into National Pastel Shows and her oil paintings have been accepted into the 2013 Plein Air Painters of Colorado exhibition and the 2014 Colorado Governor's Art Show, among others. She is a past Board Member of the Pastel Society of Colorado, a member of Plein Air Painters of Colorado, and the Artists Association of Northern Colorado.
