"My great loves have always been nature and art."-Yeshe Jackson
Yeshe Jackson was born in a tipi on a mountain top, deep within the Santa Cruz mountains. As a child he walked narrow paths through the forest, overjoyed by the sunlight filtering down through the leaves, the smell of the forest, and the sound of birds singing in the trees. The nearby Monterey Bay was another of his favorite places, with its sandy beaches and rocky cliffs, and the roar of waves crashing against the shore.
Yeshe expresses his strong feelings of connection to nature in oil and acrylic paintings. The landscape of Santa Cruz and the surrounding coastline, along with its myriad of wildlife, provide ample subject matter for his work.
"I love to travel, and always have my easel or my camera with me. My plans for the near future are to venture further on my journeys, and expand my portfolio in new and exciting directions." - Yeshe Jackson
