ARTIST BIO

About the Artist - Dee Jackson

Although Australian based, I have spent several years living in Southern Africa and New Zealand. 

Watercolour is my great love - it is the fluid spontaneity that attracts me.  As a medium, watercolour, lends itself to the softness and curves of the human form.  It allows the artist great freedom. My watercolour portraits have been commissioned throughout Australia as well as in United Kingdom, USA, Sweden, South Africa, New Zealand, Singapore and Vietnam.
