Karenza Jackson

Karenza L. Jackson was born in Chelmsford, Essex and 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 was awarded a B.A. (hons) degree in Fine Art from Suffolk College. During her time at college 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 representational nature, much of her work takes her on an experimental journey, moving it forward and keeping it fresh. A member of the Colchester Art Society she exhibits her work mainly in and around East Anglia in a variety of venues including Aldeburgh Gallery; Artspace Woodbridge; John Russell Gallery, Ipswich; Minories, Colchester; Peter Pears Gallery, Aldeburgh and elsewhere, and has been a member of the Gainsborough's House Print Workshop for many years and a member of Suffolk Open Studios from The Studio, Shimpling House, Shimpling, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
