jackson ballard (1970 -

A native of Oklahoma and long time resident of New Mexico, Jackson is inspired by the people and culture of the Southwest. 

  His beginning inspirations started with a first visit to Taos, NM in the nineties and soon continued on into the discovery of the early Taos and Santa Fe artists.

  He has no formal training and his signature style of an American Contemporary Folk artist is expressed in the various mediums he works with which include: oil, watercolor, pastel, clay and plaster.
