Biography


    


Jonathan Edward Luczycki (Lou-ziss-key) Born 1980 in Springfield, Oregon.
 
Jonathan was always drawing in sketchbooks as a kid and was greatly inspired by his mothers large oil paintings of seascapes and portrait paintings. In high school and college he was the head illustrator for a campus newspaper in Portland, OR, and then quickly decided to venture south to Laguna Beach, CA in 2002 to attend Laguna College of Art & Design, one of the leading art schools that taught the classical ways of painting the figure from life.
 
After receiving a degree in illustration with a minor in Fine Art, Jonathan veered from commercial illustration and started studying the early works of renowned landscape painters Edgar Payne, William Wendt, and John Carlson. Jonathan quickly fell in love with painting outdoors, racing to capture and record the moving light on canvas like those artists before him.

Jonathan has had several solo and group shows along the west coast since 2002, from the Pacific Northwest to Southern California, he has built relationships with collectors on a national and international scale. His paintings are in private collections across the country, as well as in collections all over the world.
