Art & Life with Jackson Finn

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jackson Finn.

Jackson, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
In December 2015 Jackson Finn opened his gallery doors titled: Seacoast Gallery in Carlsbad, located across the street from the premium outlet shops in the Paseo shopping center adjacent to the Corner Bakery. While small in size, it is big in visual impact. The gallery is a coastal themed gallery, hence the name Seacoast.

Jackson Finn’s collections is made up of fine art photography, Original oils, Limited Editions and fine art glass. The gallery features other world-renowned artists such as glass artist Richard Satava, who’s intricate hand-blown glass figures of jellyfish are both rich in color while the realism captured of the jellyfish figures are second to none.
The main artist in the gallery is our owner and local artist, Jackson Finn; both a painter and photographer who displays multiple collections of North County favorite beaches, surf scenes and various other exotic location such as Hawaii and the tropics. One particular series that is gaining much attention is the “coastal abstracts” which is a must-see. Most recently Seacoast Gallery has expanded its collection by featuring works of renowned artists Nathan Ledyard and painters, Wade Koniakowsky and Ashton Howard. Their paintings of local beaches and seascapes continue to expand the true essence of our coastal art gallery.

Jackson, a resident here in Carlsbad, got his start while displaying at local coffee shops such as Vinaka, who five years ago gave him his first art show, from there he went on to show at multiple venues and wine bars including Relm and Solterra in Leucadia. After being featured in multiple shows, he then was invited to participate in the annual San Diego art Gala of the Surfrider Foundation in which he participated in multiple years in a row as one of the featured artist helping the cause of protecting our beaches and oceans.

Jackson’s work is also featured among other locations in Carlsbad; at the Front Porch Gallery design and local design and decor shop Ampersand in the heart of the village as well as Grounded in Encinitas. We are pleased to now be a part of the Fine Art Galleries in our town of Carlsbad; you can visit the gallery

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
At age four Jackson was first introduced to the Ocean by his Grandfather. From that very first moment he became infatuated by its wonder and beauty. Through his many travels along with living in multiple coastal cities both in Florida and California, he has been able to utilize the oceans, it’s beaches and landscapes, drawing inspiration from all. Jackson continues to be inspired by his natural surroundings as this is expressed in his work through the use of bold colors and textures in his paintings, along with style and subject matter of his photographs. Jackson’s work captures and evokes the true sense of nature and the sea.

He continues to create new works while also being a gallery owner, embracing the laid back coastal and island lifestyle while featuring work that is both nature and ocean inspired. The Gallery not only features Jackson’s work but also represents other fine art artist’s original paintings, limited editions and fine art glass from around the globe.
