Anna Skillman is the owner and director of Jackson Fine Art located in Atlanta, GA.  Anna Walker Skillman has been active in the arts community for the last 13 years. After graduating in Art History from the University of Georgia in 1991, she began her career working at the Haines Gallery in San Francisco.  In 1993, Anna moved to Atlanta to manage the studio of artist Todd Murphy. After working with Mr. Murphy, Anna turned to photography and joined Jackson Fine Art in 1997.  In March of 2003, she purchased Jackson Fine Art from Jane Jackson, who became curator of the collection of Sir Elton John. As gallery director and co-curator for the past eight years, Ms. Walker Skillman is committed to a reputation of excellence in exhibiting photography by both emerging and established artists; with a focus on a blend of 20th century and contemporary work. Her commitment to Atlanta is to educate collectors and art enthusiasts as well as exhibit and support leading photographers locally, nationally and internationally. In addition, she has served on the board of AIPAD, the Association of International Photography Dealers.

Ms. Skillman seeks to review complete bodies of work with no more than 25 photographs in the portfolio.  Ms. Skillman is interested in innovative artists with a strong knowledge of the medium, its diverse processes and history.  She prefers to see finished prints presented in the size in which they are intended for exhibition. Ms. Skillman does not like to see scans, slides and print offs of the image for presentation.
