Although Jack has traveled extensively, painting, teaching and exhibiting in Europe, Asia and Latin America, Northeastern Connecticut is his home. Its deep forests, enduring farmlands and ever-changing weather are a challenge and a joy to paint.
To Jack, life is a conversation… art is a conversation. It is a conversation between artist and subject, whether the subject is a landscape, a still life or a model.
