Ray Jackson’s works bring to life their expressions, capturing Jamaica and its people in all their glory.
He is regarded as one of Jamaica’s greatest pastel artists – a technique where hands are used instead of paintbrushes. Jackson uses his hands to paint symphonies.
He is an unassuming, humble and down-to-earth person, who does not need any boisterous introduction. The work he has done and continues to do speaks for itself.
His work showcases Jamaica’s countryside and remote communities. Jackson specializes in acrylic, pastel, pencil and watercolors, and uses a mix of subjects, juxtaposing the rustic countryside with animated expressions of the people.
