Theresa Jackson

(My name is) Theresa Jackson amúlyk. (I am) Kwatsaan Native-water clan/Laguna Pueblo-badger clan (paternal), Latina (maternal). I find inspiration for my work in the natural world. Animals, plants, sky, and land. I have been painting since my sophomore year of high school and have since earned my bachelor's degree in international business (UNM), and my master's in professional writing (NAU). Indigenous tradition and culture are very important to me, and I strive to learn more about myself and my ancestors every day.

(Ty) Liwats axott-k (my heart is happy).

IVDM is excited to have 3 paintings created by Jackson on display as part of Native Voices | Native Truths: A Contemporary Experience.
