Jackson Sutton (b. 2001) lives and works in Austin, Texas. Though Jackson is a relatively young artist, his influences are vast and worldly and his work reflects that of a seasoned maker. With an avid interest in foreign countries and languages, Jackson creates distinctive characters that traverse cultural landscapes. Wherever they are, Jackson’s figures are full of joy and movement. Stylistically, Jackson draws inspiration from both cartoonists and mid-century illustrators, which is reflected in his bold colors and use of graphic pattern. Jackson has been a SAGE studio artist since 2019. He also serves on the board of directors of SAGE Studio.
"Art expresses my ideas and thoughts. Whenever I have an idea or thought that's hard to put still, I just simply draw it out, whether it be a sketchbook, sidewalk, or food stuff on a plate. I have the whole world as a canvas."
