Dream farmer; soul gardener; intergalactic tour guide; perpetual wanderer…
I’m Jay and my creative journey so far has been one full of accomplishments that I am proud of. From having my artwork displayed in a gallery, to winning awards, my artwork has always spoken about what is on my mind and takes people on a journey of their own.
Even though I am an artist who creates surreal and abstract worlds, there was a time I had no creativity and was even fearful of my own shadow. When I discovered digital art I was given the tools to turn my vision into reality. That ended when I turned to drugs at the age of 16, which inevitably spiralled me down the wrong path. In my darkest hour I was lost and then diagnosed with schizophrenia at 18. When my uncle gave me a job at his glass studio, I found a sliver of hope.
I became an assistant glass blower learning a 2000 year old craft and finally found myself developing my passion for art again. I decided to return to my fascination of creating digital art, learning the ropes on Photoshop, 3D’s Max and Bryce to express my creativity and find peace in my world.
