Upcoming Exhibition at Art2Muse Gallery February 2023

Jackson Davies is an artist based in Sydney, Australia. Jackson has always found enjoyment and purpose in painting; it is the instinctive process of creativity which informs his art making practice.

Jackson’s heritage stems from a long line of British portrait artists, ultimately like his ancestors, Jackson is particularly inspired by the face and the figure. Preferring to work from life and from his imagination, Jackson seeks to create paintings that are contemplative and emotive.

Holding a Master of Art Conservation from the University of Melbourne, Jackson has huge admiration for Old Master techniques and materials. He is committed to the development of his painting through the study and copying of these revered paintings.
