Jon Sebastian

Art and painting in particular is, for me, the selective recreation of reality according to my own principles and what I deem interesting and just in this world we share. I cannot remember when I did not paint.

Growing up in the Ohio Valley, near Cincinnati, I spent hours upon hours in the art museums there. Art was BIG, art was GRAND, it reflected a world I wanted to live in, and one i wished to duplicate in my lifetime.

As a graduate of Miami University, Oxford Ohio in Fine arts, I steamed ahead in my pursuit of a world I wanted for my life. I spent years working as an Interior Designer, retail store designer, product designer, and finally as a merchandising trainer for Hallmark Cards in Kansas City, MO. I painted through the years as I worked in commercial environments

Finally, I came to know my art as my principal focus in my life. With Asheville Gallery of Art I am now moving forward with confidence that others will find my works compelling and an addition to their own collections. I paint immersive works filled with color, light and shadow. My subjects are of nature and of the peace and spirituality in which they envelope us.
