WUCF Artisodes Paints the Past

Posted by Jennifer Cook on

On this week’s WUCF Artisodes, meet Jackson Walker, a fifth-generation Floridian and ‘visual historian’ who uses his paintbrush to bring the states history to life.

“I wanted to be a movie director. I had really no interest in being a painter, but I was very young when I determined that I would never make it to Hollywood, and I probably would never make a movie. So I thought well, what's the next best thing? And that's what got me interested in painting. But you still get to cast your characters. You get to make your locations, the costumes, the stories; only making one frame,” said Walker.

As part of WUCF’s American Graduate initiative, WUCF Artisodes proudly honors, McKenzie Fitzgerald.  She’s a junior at Hagerty High School in Oviedo and our Student Artist of the Week
