About the Artist
Vermont based oil painter Rory Jackson, has been creating bold and visionary paintings since 2000. He spends his time between his home in Lincoln, Vermont and the beaches of Ghana, where he founded the non-profit school Trinity Yard. While painting the landscapes of Vermont, he focuses on dramatic lighting and capturing the elemental vibrancy of nature. In Ghana, Rory paints seascapes, village scenes, and boats, focusing on the reflection and movement of light and the local culture.
“As a painter, my aim is to bring to life a presence to the viewer, a relationship between the earth and the people who hold covenant with it. Whether it is through light, reflection, movement or design, I want to bring everlasting life to a moment in time”
Rory Jackson with his sons Judha and Jahlani
