About the Artist

Nancy Jackson is a uniquely talented Canadian artist.  Originally from Southern Ontario, her life path has led her across this country and provided her with opportunities to settle in or experience a number of unique environments along the way.  She is most often inspired by her love of the horse and the landscape surrounding it. 

As a child, Nancy was exposed to the equine art of the late great artist Orren Mixer and many other great western artists, through the art features in the Western Horseman magazine.  She was so enamoured with the detail and technique of Mixer’s works, in particular, and fascinated with horses, in general, that she was drawn to dabble in equine and western art at an early age.  In 1993 she took private art lessons and dedicated her full time efforts to art for several years and has been painting and drawing seriously ever since. 

Nancy has bred and trained horses for many years which offers her a unique knowledge of her subject.  Most of her original art is sold directly from her studio on a horse ranch in Alberta.  She has participated in rodeos, art shows, art markets and many juried shows, including the Calgary Stampede.  Over the past three years she has also created several book covers, book marks and she has illustrated several children’s books.  She is a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.  Her pieces are featured in many private and corporate collections throughout North America and Europe.

Constantly inspired by a love of the natural world, wildlife and horses in particular she draws upon western history, legends, spirituality, imagination and life experiences to compose inimitable life-scapes of the past, present and future.  In Nancy’s work you can see the wind caressing the prairie grasses or gently lifting and playing with the hairs of a paint horse’s tail.  Her skill is equally apparent in any media she chooses; melding bone, stone and feather to flesh out the vision or painting ordinary elements in a way that they aren’t really so ordinary.  Nancy’s work shares her inner beauty, illustrating her love of the earth, the animals that populate it and the lifestyle she has chosen.


“Nancy is often inspired by her love of the natural world, wildlife and the horse in particular. She draws upon native folklore, western legends, history and her own life experience, spirituality and imagination to compose inimitable life-scapes – past, present and future. She has the distinctive ability to capture the life of her subjects and the ambiance of their surroundings in order to tell their story.”

“I just love the oil paintings I’ve purchased. They are a beautiful focal point of the rooms in which they hang, and I find a new detail every time I look at them. Nancy is truly gifted in her diversity in subject matter and methods of expressing her creativity.”
- Diana Daly

“Nancy’s ability to capture life in general and beauty in particular is fascinating. Her pencil sketches are breathtaking, and are a welcome addition to any collection.”
- Mike Crowley

"I have the privilege of having one of Nancy's oil paintings in my home. It is an autumn scene of Lake Louise. All the visitors to my home are impressed by it. It is not the only original oil painting in my home but it is the one that I receive the most comments on."
