JACKSON, Karenza

1955 - ?

Karenza L. Jackson gained an art foundation diploma which she completed at the Colchester School of Art in 1994 and whilst there, apart from painting and drawing, she discovered printmaking and in 2005 she also gained a B.A. (hons) degree in Fine Art from Suffolk College/UEA. During her time there she investigated portraiture, working in various media including plaster and she continued to experiment and develop her work, underpinning it with printmaking and regular life drawing sessions in Sudbury, Suffolk. Drawing remains central to her practice, but other media also play a part in the form of line, texture, pattern and colour. Much of her work consists of monotypes, one-off prints with an edition of just one which are a painting made with a comprehensive armoury of printmaking techniques and use of collage but she also works in a variety of other media, including painting. Being of a contemporary and mainly representational nature, much of her work takes her on an experimental journey, moving it forward and keeping it fresh. She exhibits her work mainly in and around East Anglia in a variety of venues including Aldeburgh Art Gallery; Colchester Art Society; Artspace, Woodbridge; Shipyard Studios, Wivenhoe; John Russell Gallery, Ipswich; The Minories, Colchester; Peter Pears Gallery, Aldeburgh, &c., and has been a member of the Gainsborough's House Print Workshop for many years and a member of Suffolk Open Studios from Shimpling, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
