Malika Jackson

My practice is heavily influenced by who I am as a female artist, mother, and teacher. My work bridges various aspects from figurative to abstraction, using clay and wood to create three-dimensional work to paintings. African influences, as well as other cultural ones, appear in my work similar motifs and iconography. Colorful wood works, while joyous, also energetically portray deeper meanings of soulfulness. My work is a social practice that predominately conveys stories of females in honest self-discovery.
