Jerry Maryniuk Art
Jerry's YouTube WAVE Tour Video
Jerry grew up in rural Mb. (Inglis & Arborg). Those formative years gave him a deep appreciation for nature and art. Wildlife drawings and caricatures of friends were common place. Jerry chose Policing as a career and as such soon became an accomplished Police/forensic artist, retiring to the Interlake (Arborg) after 25 years. “I have tried my hand at most every type of art, but cartooning remains a constant.”
It was somewhat ironic that he studied at the Scottsdale Artists School and decades later, returned to Arizona as a retired snowbird. It was in Arizona that he started his book of cartoons, “SnowBird Sketches (Emil goes south for the winter)”. The book laughs at the ups and downs of getting old. Arizona also got him involved with gourds.
Jerry’s art is inspired by his son Steve who passed on Dec.3 2013 from Brain Cancer (31 yrs.).
“Live life with a sense of humour and never waste a day.”
Remembering, Thinking, Planning, Possibilities, and a Yummy new Project!
How's that maple syrup, Jerry?
