ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Jay is 67 years old and lives in Worcester, Massachusetts and has a large studio in old mill building where it is quiet, spacious and mediative.
As a kid, Jay enjoyed finger painting in nursery school and he loved the the personal freedom of creating something from nothing on paper and bringing it home to show his mother who saved them for many years..
Making art was always a special event and Jay looked forward to making art when he had time later in life. Although Jay is mostly self taught as an artist he did attend Massachusetts College of Art and Design where he achieved an MFA in painting in 2000.
Jay worked in human services during his working years and aspects of psychology are often present in the work as well as an appreciation for nature and the sublime.
Jay’s art and photography are dreamy, experimental and unknown and he offers opportunities for connection unconstrained by prepackaged experiences such as titles or exact orientation. Jay prefers viewers establish their own relationship with the work and find their own way in it.
Jay has been in many group shows in colleges, galleries and museums in the US. He is listed in Whose Who in America and Whose Who in American Art.
