About Amy Jackson

Amy Jackson graduated from Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art at The University of Oxford in 2008. An interdisciplinary conceptual artist with 15 years’ experience blending concept, philosophy, science and tools to create immersive experiences in traditional galleries and unconventional spaces.

Jackson is also well known for her work in the
Responsible Investment space, which she describes as ‘an important part of her activism’. She explores issues such as climate change, conflict, consumerism, social media, mental health and critically, how these themes are inextricably linked. Experience spans public speaking on the environment, responsible investment and group and solo exhibitions.

Jackson has several solo and group exhibitions in 2020 including Cooltzine vol.3 Changes, 50 Shades of Grey and Navy, #IRL and the highly acclaimed Kensington + Chelsea Art Week.
