Jay is a self taught artist, painting in oils with a wide variety of interests. His current work is focused on something all festival goers are familiar with, Storms! In 2017, I went storm chasing with six of the top storm chasers from Alberta and Saskatchewan and produced a body of work called Turbulent Skies. The six large canvases were based on photographs taken by the chasers on each chase. These pieces were my interpretations of these amazing storms. Since that time, I've become a storm chaser myself and continue to "chase and paint".
