Biography from Blue Coyote Gallery:
Born in 1926, Jason Williamson spent his early years in Virginia where he first became interested in art. Painting was always his primary interest, and from the beginning he favored watercolor painting.

Following service in the United States Air Force during World War II, he attended Emory and Henry college in Virginia. His art training was received at the Vesper George School of Art in Boston, Massaschusetts from 1947 to 1950 where he specialized in design and illustration. After graduating he served as art director for a pharmaceutical company in Bristol, Tennesee. He later joined the art department of Plough Inc. of Memphis, Tennesee before becoming a free-lance illustrator.

Soon after establishing his commercial art studio in Memphis, Williamson was asked to assume the advertising college art department directorship at the Memphis Academy of Art in 1960. He accepted the position while still maintaining his commercial studio. He continued to teach and operate the studio simultaneously for the next ten years.

In 1970 he relinquished both studio and instructing in order to open the Golden Fleece Art Gallery in Memphis. In 1976 the gallery was moved to Carefree, Arizona. Williamson operated the gallery with his wife Peggie for the next 17 years. For the last five years Jason was the Golden Fleece's sole featured artist. The gallery was closed in 1987 when Peggy decided to retire.

In 1978 he was selected for signature membership in the American Watercolor Society. This was followed in 1979 with signature membership in the National Watercolor Society.

Most of Williamson's painting has involved experimentation and developing techniques and styles of watercolor painting. He has over fifty one-man shows to his credit. Today he lives and paints in his studio in Cave Creek, Arizona.
