Florence Jackson is an illustrator based in West Wales. She works primarily in traditional media such as gouache, watercolour and printmaking. Her work is informed by Eastern mythology and philosophy but aims to create ambiguous narratives that can be universally relatable.
When asked to design the 'Winter Mural' for Wales Millennium Centre, she wanted to create a piece that was reminiscent of tales from different cultures, drawing inspiration from stories such as Babushka, Diwali and The Three Wise Men. Many of these stories contain pilgrimages towards light, love and shelter and the coming together of people from near and far to celebrate the joys of life.
