John Wayne Jackson

Imagine That! Creations

Black Mountain, NC

I’ve learned to enjoy working alone now… having had people around me throughout my consulting career.  In working alone I’ve also learned to let my imagination run wild. I feel like the luckiest guy alive to have discovered two passions in one lifetime!

Working from his studio in Black Mountain, NC, artist John Wayne Jackson has turned his passion for gardening toward creating Contemporary Fossils. Using real leaves to obtain their intricate vein patterns, Jackson creates the work from OmegaStone – John’s proprietary medium that incorporates a blend of powdered natural stone and polymers.

Reminiscent of fossilized images in stone, his leaf art is unique and instantly recognizable for the richness of color and texture he creates.

John’s previous career included consulting with corporations and government agencies. The transition to professional artist was a big stretch.  “I’ve learned to enjoy working alone now… having had people around me throughout my consulting career.  In working alone I’ve also learned to let my imagination run wild. I feel like the luckiest guy alive to have discovered two passions in one lifetime!”

“My work is inspired by the forms of nature; she is my constant companion and partner”.
