She exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Boston Artists Guild, Massachusetts; Springfield Museum of Fine Arts; Royal Academy of Scotland; and three museums in Italy, the Art Museum of Florence, Art Museum of Trieste, and National Museum of Modern Art, in Rome. In 1924, she exhibited at the Concord Art Association in a show featuring such prominent artists as Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt and George Bellows.

Her work is in the collections of the Calgary Museum, Alberta, Canada; Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, New York; Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire; and Wellesley College, Massachusetts.

Jackson was commissioned by the Dominican laity to sculpt an eighteen-inch-high bronze sculpture of St. Catherine of Siena on the six hundredth anniversary of the death of the Saint. The fourth of five castings, the work is in the cloister walk of the Dominican House of Studies on Michigan Avenue in Washington, D.C.
