Tony Jackson - Artist, Illustrator and (casual) Photographer.
Born in the 1980's, Tony Jackson spent his formative years in a town west of London called Slough where Mars Bars were made, moaning Mrs Evans lived next door and a popular comedy show called The Office was based. Dusty, industrial and busy, but home none the less. Roast dinners took place at Nanny Sloans on a Sunday. The family would assemble. Much tea was strained and many laughs were had by the adults in a crowded, smokey living room with wood panel walls.
At the age of 7 his family moved north to the highlands of Scotland, travelling by car through the beautiful Cairngorm mountains with a soundtrack provided by Fleetwood Mac. Tony attended school and later went on to further education, studying Art in Inverness and Visual Communication in Aberdeen. He worked his way through various jobs, mostly in hospitality, and could often be found sketching on old receipts or note pads.
After experiencing life a little and observing the world, it was time to consider a career take art more seriously. He continued to experiment with painting and drawing using various mediums, techniques and styles. His aim to explore the properties each had to offer and how they could be best used to express an idea or image.
In 2017 a website was created and ajrjacksonart.com was born.
Tony Jackson is now working on Illustration and based in Inverness, Scotland.
