I was led to Jackson's work through fellow performance artist, Benjamin Sebastian. Both Sebastian and Jackson are an essential part of ]performance space[, a non-profit organization devoted to the cultivation and promotion of performance art. I asked Jackson to consider the initial lure of performance art and name influential artists. Here was her response:
QD: What led you to performance art?
PJ: My body
QD: Are there performance artists working today that influence your practice?
