Troy Jackson Artist

Troy Jackson artist.

It’s been said that Troy Jackson is a highly self-motivated professional in his personal work, as well as a highly motivational art educator. As a ceramicist, he has not only taken the initiative to develop himself artistically, but has used his technical talents to construct and fire using his own kilns. Operating off the beaten path of easily available supplies and equipment, he has proved incredibly resourceful and flexible in the creation and manufacture of his ceramic pieces. Troy is also a very talented 2-D artist as well, working in a variety of media.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

A native Oklahoman, the award winning Cherokee artist received his Associates’ degree from Bacone College in Muskogee, a Bachelor of Arts degree from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, and later completed a Master Of Fine Arts program at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. This extended education opened the door for many diverse studies in which Troy has no hesitancy in applying to art. His hand-built and wheel-thrown vessels not only signify a Southeastern motif but also express a Spanish, French and European influence.
