Link Jackson was born in Montana to a back
country guide and sportsman. He roamed the wild places throughout his life fly fishing, running rivers, back country
skiing, backpacking and pursuing outdoor adventures.
The camera has always been his constant companion. He studied the arts in college and paid some of his college costs selling his paintings. His other business, Streamtech Boats, provides a forum for applying artistic designs to the painting of boats, oars and various related accessories.
Running rivers, expeditions and traveling in the boat business offers opportunity to collect thousands of images, some of which become reference for paintings.
His works have appeared in Galleries, Magazine Spreads, Private Shows, on dozens of Streamtech Boats, in Books and on products. His art is often in for conservation projects. His works have also won several awards.
