Nicola Jackson (born 1960) is New Zealand artist, born in Dunedin.[1][2]

Jackson is best known for her small, highly detailed and vividly coloured papier-mâché three dimensional paintings.[3] She frequently references domestic life and female identity in a very subtle way, occasionally reaching over into the expressively grotesque and medical anatomical taxonomy.[4]

Jackson studied at the Ilam School of Fine Arts at the University of Canterbury,[5] focusing on sculpture and printmaking.[4] She received a prestigious Goethe-Institut scholarship to study in Germany in 1992[4] and in 1994 she was awarded the Frances Hodgkins Fellowship from the University of Otago.[6]

Exhibitions by Jackson include:

Works by Jackson are held in collections throughout New Zealand including the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa[2] and Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu.[13]
