About Me

cropped-jaologo.png

I was born in St. Paul, Minnesota. 1986

A few major loses and a short decade career trying to save lives led me on a path to creating art.

My early inspirations came from watching Bob Ross, Mr. Rogers and my older brother Tim.  Other inspirations are drawn from my love for big scenery and a fascination with life science.  I try to dig into emotions while creating most of my work;  Personal life events and empathetic listening give my mind a bank of material.

I love talking to new people so feel free to send me an email or find me while I’m out doing public performances.  Take a look around, share what you like, leave what you don’t.
