Ernest Amos-Jackson - Modern Artist 

Ernest is an artist living and working in Santa Cruz, Ca. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Computer & Video Imaging (CGI) at Cogswell Polytechnical College, and his Associate of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Drawing, with Honors from Cabrillo College. 

   Ernest 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 and 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 is compelled and finds it necessary to express movement and action, influenced in part by watching cartoons and animated movies. 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. His collectors also benefit from his innate business sense as he works to deadline and within budget constraints.

Ernest's artworks have been purchased for private collections in the U.S. He is immersed in the arts community through gallery shows and art festivals.
