Memorable Manitobans: Stephen Phillip Jackson (1946-2015)


Born at Winnipeg in 1946, he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Manitoba in 1967. He worked in scenic painting for movies, graphic art, sign design and lettering, and illustration, and had a studio at his residence at Roseisle. In the 1990s, he was one of three artists hired to paint murals around Boissevain, including on the side of one of the town’s grain elevators. He also painted murals in Winnipeg and elsewhere. He died at Notre Dame de Lourdes on 30 December 2015.
