    The Art Of — Kaila Jackson

    Kaila Jackson - Blue Green Patina

    Kaila Jackson - Blue Green Patina

    Kaila Jackson is a flower gardener and floral artist working out of a stunning barn attic studio in Northeast Ohio. She grows and stylizes flowers to use as inspiration for her paintings. Mixing shimmering, natural pigments with delicate flourishes to create beautiful arrangements on handmade paper.

    "I find so much inspiration in light. When I wake to the silhouette of trees against a bright pink sky or watch long shadows dance on the wall of my studio in the late afternoon, I can feel the inspiration bubbling inside me. Like a peaceful kind of excitement, my ideas are sharp and vibrant, energy flows, and it all comes from golden light." 

    "Sometimes, like today, I walk to my studio on a gray, rainy day, climb a ladder to my attic space, and look out the window that oversees a corner of my garden. I think about newly sown flower seeds & small plants being watered by the rain. I light a candle, watch the flame flicker, enjoy the fresh scent, and in the stillness, I relax and begin to feel inspired." 

     

    "I paint with shimmering watercolors, made from mica powder mixed with color pigments. The paints grab any available light and reflect colors, so my vision travels around my painting as I work, until I feel dizzy with bliss. I add the final finishing details, and step back to watch the colors change as I move around the piece. There is fulfillment and satisfaction I only find here. An addiction, definitely, that keeps me coming back for more. And it all starts so simply: with light."

    SHIMMERING FLOWERS & RESTORATIVE MOMENTS with Kaila Jackson of Blue Green Patina

    My name is Kaila Jackson. I'm a watercolor artist living on a little piece of countryside in the state of Ohio. My mission is to bring beauty to the world wherever I can.

    Flowers are an obsession of mine - the beauty, the whimsy, the happiness they bring to a human, a home, or a life. I buy them, I grow them, I paint them. Usually in shades of pink.

    Quiet + Creative Spaces

    Before I paint, I set my space. I want a quiet room, a glass of wine or a cup of tea, fresh flowers on my table, and always, a candle. The day of the week doesn't matter. Snow flurries, a thunderstorm, or blue-skies - my requirements are the same.

    Within that space I can always decompress. I dip my paintbrush and allow the twisted floral vines of my mind to unravel into swirls and brushstrokes that become shimmering flowers, spilling out of a basket or a vase. Painting is, for me, restorative. I find a sense of calm in my routine and look forward to that daily quiet, my paints, the drink, the flowers, and the candle.
