Mary Nell Jackson has been creating art since childhood. She found great joy in playing with pops of color and straying from the boundaries of typical or conservative art. Since graduating from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting, she has continued to experiment with various techniques and subject matter, focusing mainly on painting and making maiolica pottery. Mary Nell’s eye for color, texture, and array of media bring a distinct energy to her work, often described as refreshing and fun. She hopes that her abstract expressionist work energizes viewers and inspires their curiosity.
