Interesting facts about Jason:
While I maintain a sculpture studio--primarily carving stone and wood on commission--I can be found outdoors any chance I am given. I hunt, fish, and kayak regularly. My wife Amanda and I have two elementary aged children: Joanna and Will. Both kids love to create art in my studio.
Why Jason enjoys teaching art:
Art is a calling for me as I have always been interested in creating with my hands. I enjoy sharing the pleasure of making that which does not already exist. Art can recall the past, explain the present, and explore the future. Artists are some of the great problem solvers our civilization needs. I believe much of our humanity is tied to the creations of our artists.
