"My paintings are about the physical aspects of the natural world. My work is presented in a stylized manner to express the motion, temperature and emotion within an image. My work has a clean almost graphic feel that allows the pattern and design in an image dance. Most of my work occurs in the studio, but I have been challenging myself to step outdoors to paint more regularly. I have been a biologist for most of my professional life and my experiences in the field have provided me with a lifetime of inspiration. Every plant identified and wetland discovered provides me with new inspiration and a craving to express it on canvas." - Vikki Jackson
