Jason Daniel Jackson

“Vintage toys are exciting. I see them as us acting out the memories we share on a secret stage. It appears to me like a dream. When the thought of them makes me smile. I know I have something to share. My reward is knowing my work can evoke happiness. “

About the Artist

Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Jason Daniel Jackson graduated from Nossi College of Art in 2003, with a degree in commercial art. He soon became interested in painting, and now has chosen to work primarily in oil. Jason divides his time between painting still lifes with a special emphasis on vintage toys, commissioned portraits and landscapes.

Jason is influenced by realist artists from the 19th century. His Favorites include William Bougoureau, Maxfield Parrish, Antonio Mancini and Ivan Shishkin. He is continually looking to artists of the past and present for instruction and inspiration. Recent instruction has come from workshops with Michael Shane Neal,  Roger Dale Brown, and Anthony Ryder.

For four years Jason apprenticed under nationally known portrait artist Dawn Whitelaw. She has instilled in him a strong work ethic, as well as a dedication to passing down the craft. In the interest of sharing what he is learning, Jason has recently begun to teach. Jason draws inspiration for his art from everyday life, as well as childhood memories. As his painting progresses, he strives to develop his ability to express himself through his body of work.
