Born in the Midwest, Jack has been painting since early childhood. A self-taught artist, he has created his own individual but varied style. Jack works in both oils and acrylics to create contemporary and traditional paintings.
While his traditional realism can be nostalgic, his contemporaries have a Floridian influence. His extensive travels throughout the United States have contributed greatly to the varied subjects of his work. He is especially adept at capturing landscapes and
the nostalgia of old buildings. His
interpretation can be very real, persuasive and
authentic in detail, or sometimes impressionistic and imaginative.
While living in South Florida, Jack successfully captured the light and colors unique to
that area. His experience gained in painting this varying and exceptionally complicated Gulf Coast atmosphere has contributed to his ability to add further dimensions to
landscape paintings of other locations of the country.
Although Jack is known for his fine art paintings he has also completed a twenty-eight thousand square foot realistic mural at the Okoboji Classic Car Museum. This is
presently the largest mural in the world completed by a single artist.
