Born in Altoona, Pennsylvania in 1955, Jack spent most of his childhood overseas until 1968, when he moved to Alexandria, Virginia. He attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, where he obtained a Baccalaureate Degree in Painting and Printmaking in 1976. Starting in 1978, he spent several years as an apprentice, and then assistant printmaker at Atlantic Editions, Richmond, Virginia, where he learned lithography in the tradition of a studio atelier. Then, in 1982, he moved to the Washington DC area, where he was a “master lithographer”, collaborating with other artists to produce hand-pulled lithographs.In 1986, he moved to rural Maryland, where he continued to pursue his own vision as an artist in printmaking, drawing , and painting. He now lives in Fairhaven, Maryland, with his wife and family, in a house and studio overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. The local landscape is evident in his oil pastel drawings and paintings.
