Robert C. Jackson (b. 1964 Kinston, NC) is a contemporary realist still life artist. The path that brought him to this full time and fulfilling career as an artist is somewhat varied and unusual. Robert graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Electrical Engineering in 1986 and proceeded to work as a systems engineer designing radio systems for Motorola for the next 5 years. He left engineering, not for painting, but for the ministry working at Cedar Ridge Community Church in Spencerville, MD as an assistant pastor for the next 6 years. Since 1997 Robert has been painting full time and exhibiting his work in various galleries from coast to coast.
