After many years in Atlanta he left the audio studios and moved to Miami where he focused mainly on his paintings. He had many shows but the most memorable show was at Blank Canvas gallery hosted by the family of the famous Colombian artist Fernando Botero. Jay recently moved to Charlotte to continue his passion for creating as well as teaching visual arts to people of all ages. He is currently a local NODA artist working in his studio on 15th Street and shows his work all over Charlotte.

Mission statement:

I love life and all the universe has to offer.  I see materials that inspire me to create everywhere. I take all types of discarded materials and rearrange them and give them a new life. I want to show the beauty in everyday items otherwise over looked.  I utilize metal, wood, paint and jewelry to create my art. Appreciate the little things.
