Matt Jackson, Colorado Springs Member Since January 2012 Artist Statement Hello, my name is Matt. I am a digital artist. I am not a photographer. I sell my pictures through out Colorado at various fairs and festivals. My prices vary from lows of $25 for an 8 x 10 matted and $40 for a 14 x 11 matted, to framed pieces ranging from $69 to $150, and aluminum and canvas pieces ranging from $100 to $500. I have many limited editions. I can ship pieces if you pay the shipping costs.
In the fall I will be creating my own website. Until then, I employ imagekind to show my work.
If you wish to contact me, my e-mail address is email@example.com.
Here is a short Bio:
Prior to 2009, I was consumed by my job to the exclusion of everything else that's important. I was extremely successful in what I “accomplished.” In 2009, as the pressures and excesses mounted, I was toppled and descended into a profound depression. I was out of work for two months. As I recovered, I found solace through Photo Shop. I began making pictures and eventually reclaimed my life through art. The images I create speak to the person who was hidden for all those years. I am liberated from the mundane world I once dominated.
When I returned I was transferred into a less stressful, less prominent position. Some would call it failure.
Now, at age 63, I show my work at mountain art fairs here in Colorado. People are excited by my images, and I consider myself moderately successful. I am retired and I don’t know what the future has in store for me. I do know that this journey is not over, and it includes my family, my God, and the truth of who I am today.
