Just five years in the Lone Star State, Jack lived the first part of this life in his native Southern California, his ancestors among those noted for settling Santa Monica when orange groves were the stock and trade. Spending 29 years in Las Vegas, Jack put his artistic nature into a successful commercial printing company. Upon selling the company in 1998, Jack and his wife Sharon moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico. A five year endeavor into designing custom wood screened doors reignited Jack’s adolescent passion for painting. Jack entered, showed and sold his paintings in many venues across New Mexico. With a move to Sharon’s native state of Texas, Jack’s enthusiasm for painting and testing the boundaries of subject continues to evolve. He paints everyday simple subjects in a realistic to representational style. He hopes you like what you see.
