About My Business:

 

Carrie Jackson is an internationally collected American artist, creator and visionary. Carrie is currently under contract with ABC & Disney to create artwork for a variety of film and television sets. Carrie came from a background of very little means and she initially began creating artwork as an escape from her own life’s harsh realities. As a child, Carrie created many of her own toys and games out of necessity and often entertained herself and others with her stories and creations. Carrie lived in a world of her own imagination and this developed a strong sense of creativity, innovation and invention in her life. Carrie Jackson comes from a mixed heritage of Jewish, Cherokee and Slovakian and and she was educated at home. Carrie spent much of her youth traveling with her family living a nomadic lifestyle; Carrie has lived all over the U.S. from the East coast, to the West coast, having moved well over 20 times and counting. Through Carrie’s travels she was exposed to a wide variety of different cultures, environments and concepts that have helped shape and influence many of her views visible in her artwork. Some of the more interesting environments that impacted Carrie Jackson’s art, include living on a film set during production of a movie in California and meeting and staying with legendary stuntman Bob Yerkes (known for his work on movies like “Back to the Future”, “Star Wars:Episode VI” and “Hook”). Carrie actually earned and received Bob Yerkes’ official “Stuntmans Association” badge from Bob, during his training of the actor Jeff Cohen, (the character Chunk) for the movie “Goonies”. During Carrie’s time living on the film set she met many different actors, artists and media professionals who helped open her artistic eyes and broaden her vision to the world of arts. Carrie has had many encounters with film from both sides of the camera. As a young girl Carrie Jackson appeared on a talk show alongside Dale-Evans Rogers (Roy Rogers’s wife), sang in a commercial for a educational phonetics program, and appeared in a commercial for a family abuse hotline. It’s some of these experiences that really pushed Carrie out of her box, which can be seen clearly in her artwork. The professionalism, drama and beauty Carrie Jackson captures in her art are very apparent.
