Artist Statement

"I try to create acrylic paintings with a unique style and passion. I don't often have a plan in mind when I begin, except to use my current emotional mood as fuel, to convey that feeling through the use of color and placement. As you may expect, my state of mind changes daily, thus my art also changes by experimenting with various techniques. I am compelled and find it necessary to express movements and actions through the paint. I don't like to see a sedated canvas. It is my hope that somehow my art can act as a capsule to store my emotion and that any time a viewer interacts with my painting, (s)he receives that stored message and can share that same feeling. "


Ernest Amos-Jackson brings over 20 years of professional experience in the design industry to work on every art project. His training within two top design studios allows him to further develop his creative skills, and his innovative, thoughtful, and relevant designs are in high demand.

Ernest has been an artist his entire life, beginning from a very young age growing up in Santa Cruz, Ca. his drawings were displayed throughout his family's home.  His free hand drawing, sketching, cartooning and painting skills are among the finest, allowing him to create unique and beautiful pieces. He finds it necessary to express movement and action, thus his finished works appear to be dancing.

Although Ernest's work embodies the extremes of either abstract, or realism, some of the artists who Ernest admires include: Salvador Dali, Yves Tanguy, Maxfield Parrish, Edmund Leighton, Adolphe-William Bouguereau, Vincent Van Gogh, Norman Rockwell and Jackson Pollock.

Collectors appreciate Ernest's ability to successfully translate his vision into a striking and memorable piece. When being commissioned for a new piece, his approachable style in communicating with collectors has helped immeasurably in meeting their artistic, or commercial design needs.

Ernest's artworks have been purchased for private collections in the U.S. He was immersed in the arts community through gallery shows and art festivals (before COVID). Now, he sells online via art websites, or by appointment.
