Jerry grew up in Inglis and Arborg, Manitoba. Those formative years gave him a deep appreciation of nature and art. Wildlife paintings and cartoons of friends were commonplace.
Jerry chose Policing as a career, and soon became an accomplished Police/Forensic Artist. When he retired to Arborg, he opened a studio. It was ironic that he studied at the Scottsdale Artist school and decades later returned as a snowbird. It was in Arizona that he started his first book of cartoons, called "SnowBird Sketches, (Emil goes South for the Winter)". His 2nd book, "The Rusty Years" will soon be released. The books laugh at getting old.
Arizona also introduced him to growing and painting gourds. Sculpting and creating theme trolls during the isolation of the pandemic lockdowns has given us some "must see" new items.
His art is inspired by his son Steven, who passed from brain cancer at 31 yrs of age. "Live your life with a sense of humour and never waste a day"
