Art remained a significant and rewarding interest of JJ’s from childhood up into his collegiate years. Hereupon he changed his major from Math Education to reflect his passion, and graduated in class of 2012 from UCONN, with a B.A. in Fine Arts. Thereafter he worked with a variety of youth programs (another labor of love for him), and multiple graphic design jobs. Inspired, following a serendipitous feature in a 2015 art showcase, he began to pursue such opportunities. Gradually becoming the self sufficient artist he is today. It wouldn’t be possible without all the people who commission his work, and support his pieces.
