Paintings in Oil and Acrylic

Roger Jackson

Roger was born in the UK, came to Canada as a child when the common way to get here was by grand old steamships. His formative years were spent in Stratford Ontario. Although his interest in art has been life-long, he didn't start painting until the early '90s when he attended a series of continuing education courses. In 1997 he was transferred to Calgary where he  met his most-influential instructor and mentor, Marija Petricevic, who challenged and encouraged, then recommended that he should apply for membership in the Federation of Canadian Artists (his reaction: me? show my work to real artists?) Roger survived that ordeal and has been an Active-status member since 1998. As his working career was winding down, they moved to Vancouver Island in 2008, settling in Mill Bay. Now retired . . . whatever that is . . . he has been able to devote more time to his painting; even doing some instructional workshops. He believes it is important to keep nurturing creativity in others.
