Lavenderfest 2011: Jim Jackson

Jim Jackson's Monkey Sculpture

When I first moved to the country from the city, one of the events I looked forward to was the Norfolk County Fair. Robert would take me and we always love looking at the art. One of the artists catching my eye was Jim Jackson. He is a master of airbrushing and is also an accomplished sculptor. I’ve admired his work from afar and finally got a chance to meet him while he was doing a demonstration at the fairgrounds.

He is down to earth and extremely talented. He has such a skill for capturing wildlife. His transition to sculpting is natural. While at Lavenderfest, I found him carving into a very large, long log. He is working on a totem pole project. I approached him and was pleasantly surprised that he remembered me. I haven’t been active in the art scene in the area for a long time- especially in the last two years with having Natalie.

It’s always wonderful to see an artist one admires. It made Lavenderfest extra special. Jim is an incredible local artist and I can’t wait to see how his project turns out. I’ll be on the lookout for his work again this year at the County Fair.
