jonsson :  First I moved to Manhattan, where excellent professors at SVA (School of VIsual Arts) taught me to paint and draw realistically.  The process became too tight though, so as crazy as this might sound, I left it behind.  (Matisse and Picasso, originally Realists, did the same.)  Next  I became a commissioned artist in Manhattan.   Then I discovered 'new territory' and found  patrons who love my art and who get why...

I paint and draw from memory and imagination only,
show the way a person, place or thing feels, and
rarely paint or draw the same way twice.
