Where It All Began

DSC_0388Denise Jackson-Cummings is the conceptual and creative force behind Jackson Entertainment. Denise has been entertaining audiences young and old in the Midwest region going on 17 years.  She is the performing artist in her balloon twisting costumed characters. Her most recognized character is Cowgirl Kate the Clown.  This character clown is the culmination of Denise’s real life experiences for her love of horsemanship, dance, and acting, as well as impromptu comedy performance.  In essence, she takes the very best qualities of herself and those who have touched her life and uses these influences in her performance as an artist. Denise holds a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the University of Central Missouri. As a former student-athlete endurance runner in college, Denise has the ability to perform in a high energy manner for hours on end. Her creative talent is derived, in part, from the upbringing in her somewhat bohemian, artistic family during the 1970’s in the westport area of Kansas City, Missouri. Denise’s love of costuming and acting is apparent in her other characters such as Witch Hazel and Katrina the Elf. Denise realized early in her career that performance art that is “off the cuff” is her true calling, her passion, and her creative expression.
