Jonathan works primarily in the medium of pen and ink drawing and is also a painter and photographer. He discovered his penchant for drawing at age 10 and studied art in elementary and high school. He holds a BFA in Illustration from SUNY Buffalo where he was mentored by noted illustrator Alan E. Cober, who encouraged Jon to “journal” his experiences through sketching. Jon applied this concept and eventually found a niche in drawing musicians in live performance at jazz venues around New York City and in Chicago, New Orleans, and Paris. Jon’s jazz drawings have been presented at NYC music spots such as Jazz Gallery and Zinc Bar. He has become part of the fabric of the New York City jazz scene and counts a number of accomplished musicians among his friends. Jon’s work was featured in a two-person show, Chasing the Light, at Fountain Gallery and in a three-person show at Gallery New World Stages.
