Emma Jackson, local artist from Rochester, NY





Emma Jackson is a Rochester native who graduated with a Bachelors in Fine Arts from Nazareth College in 2015. After dabbling in several mediums she has realized that not just one can hold her attention. Though her concentration in college was ceramics, she enjoys drawing and painting just as much.
