Biography  
Everett Jackson


Born in Mexia, TX on Oct. 8, 1900, Jackson grew up on a ranch near Dallas.  After entering Texas A & M University as an architecture student, he soon opted for an art career.  He continued his studies at the Art Institute of Chicago.  In the summer of 1923 he made his first trip to Mexico and established a studio near Guadalajara.  While there, he was greatly influenced by Rivera and Orozco.  From that time on Mexican motifs dominated his art.

The classic Ramona by Helen Hunt Jackson is amply illustrated with his work.  In 1928 he moved north to San Diego where he would remain.  He received his M.A. degree from USC and taught at San Diego State College from 1930 until retirement
