Art Swap 2013: Wooded Creatures

Gray Heron

Katie "K-Jax" Jackson blends painting and woodwork in this series of fourteen veneer paintings of flying, swimming, and land animals from the northeast, all of which are perched, standing, or sitting in tune with the grain of the wood around them.  Check out the full series here.

Katie Jackson is a graduate of Bennington College and the New England School of Architectural Woodworking, and currently builds and sells custom benches, tables, nightstands, and other furniture through her website, Katie Jackson Woodworks.  I don't know if people still call her K-Jax, or if it's only me who does that.  Aside from her many works of furniture, she also built the meteoroid mobile shown below, inspired in part by the Aggro Crag from Nickelodeon Guts.
