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.
My art is about reconnecting and living in harmony with nature. I truly hope that my story and art can help others who maybe going through the same struggles as I did and find peace of their own.
