Jayne Reid Jackson is primarily a printmaker specializing in mezzotint. In addition to her formal art training at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and Madison and the AGB Graphics Workshop in Madison Wisconsin, she is self-taught in the mezzotint technique and is known internationally for her mezzotint work where she concentrates on still life elements to study how glass and simple objects can create mystery and visual poetry by manipulating the shadows and reflections of the objects and their surroundings.
She is a member of several print societies across the United States and internationally and has exhibited regularly in member exhibitions with these organizations along with numerous juried shows and invitationals. Besides US collections, her mezzotints are included in several international public collections in Europe, Russia, China, India and Australia. She is currently Director of the International Mezzotint Society.
