Maz Jackson

Maz Jackson works within the traditions of egg tempera using mineral pigments and gold leaf on gessoed oak panels to give her paintings a unique surreal quality. Her work is in exhibitions and collections worldwide. Maz has been selected to represent the UK at Venice, Florence and Palermo Biennales and has won national and international awards.

Describe your approach to teaching:

I enjoy de-mystifying egg tempera techniques. Any image can be adapted and portrayed, once the basic skills are absorbed. I aim to give people confidence to make this medium a satisfying part of their own practice.

What inspires your own work?

I have a deep interest in traditions of practice. Imagery springs from anything that excites, the spaces between and things sacred.
