Biography


BACKGROUND
Jason has a diverse background and was employed in the field of fine art for almost 14 years. In addition to fine art photography and abstract landscape painting he also specializes in photographing artwork. Through this diversity each life experience along the way has fed the artistic creative nature on some level whether it was realized or not. While hesitant to refer to himself as an artist he is most content while pursuing artistic endeavors in a quiet reflective environment.
 
 
 
MUSIC
Jason is an accomplished musician and songwriter who discovered a love for photography, painting and web design as an adult after reaching a musical plateau. The transition from aural to visual has been a natural extension in the pursuit of furthering creative exploration in his life.
 
 
INSPIRATION
Growing up in rural Oklahoma fostered an appreciation of big skies, open space, and dramatic sunsets which is often evident in his landscape  photography. Additional inspiration comes from his fascination with the ocean and the  seemingly unending horizon line. This inspiration is mirrored by the often vague and implied horizon in his paintings. His painting style is largely abstract and loosely based on a color field approach. However, paint and texture is built up to create interest and surface tension.

JEFFERSON
Jefferson is Jason's Basset Hound. As you can see from his picture, he is quite a handsome boy. He loves string cheese and has an obnoxious streak but he loves people. He has been known to nap in the studio and is very protective of his kid. He is reasonably well known and ups my social media cred frequently. The world needs more hound dog love!
