Jay was born in 1971. He’s the youngest of three brothers and son to a career army father and mother who put up with it all. Growing up Jay found himself frequently adjusting to new surroundings. Six formative years of living and attending school in Germany and South Korea exposed Jay to European and Asian cultures. This mixture of influences and experiences is apparent in his most recent series titled A Curious Art Spectacle. Jay lives in Decatur, Georgia with his wife Amy and their three boys in a small house under a big tree.
