Thomas Jackson is an Australian artist and illustrator who was born in Bolton, United Kingdom. Moving to Sydney, Australia as a child, he was instantly drawn to the natural wildlife of this new country. Fascinated by the local animals and landscapes, he drew inspiration from his new home, as well as scientific plant and animal specimens, entomology and taxidermy. Today, Thomas puts a modern take on natural history illustration, painstakingly creating smaller scale works for galleries and translating these into large scale public murals.

Artist statement:

In this new series of works, Thomas Jackson  has focused on a few species which he finds particularly beautiful. His study into these creatures only furthers his love for them and grows a new level of ‘Admiration’.

Thomas showcases both our amazing native species but also a few international favourites.

As always his hope is to show their beauty and the incredible ways these species have evolved and adapted to their environments and why we should protect them.

Thomas’ admiration for the native world started at a very young age when he moved to Australia and was instantly drawn to the beauty and mystique of his new environment. To this day this passion persists and finds new ways to love the natural world he shares with the all creatures great and small.
