Best of Peoria

For three years running, Preston Jackson has claimed the title of “Best Visual Artist”—and it’s no wonder why. He’s the Peoria area’s most remarkable artist, a painter and sculptor who continually produces works of historic significance, whether casting legendary figures like Miles Davis or Richard Pryor in bronze, or shining a light on individuals whose stories are equally important but often go unheard. He’s also a master musician and martial artist—turning every medium he touches to gold with his artistic Midas touch.
