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.
I have many limited editions.
If you wish to contact me, my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
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, in retirement, I show my work at mountain art fairs here in Colorado. People are excited by my images, and I consider myself moderately successful, having sold over 1600 images.
Although I am nearing 70, 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.
