Paris, France - February 2016
Passion! It’s that unexplainable sense of satisfaction you feel when you are doing what you were made to do. It’s what J experiences when he is at his easel. Art isn’t something that he chose. Rather, he feels that it chose him. From the time he was very young, J can remember being excited by the creative process. Passion.This native Texan's first portrait commission was in 1976. Since then he has made his way through the art world starting as a layout artist in a print shop to art director of an Inc. 500 company.
Finally opening his own graphic arts company where he created art for hundreds of clients, including Virgin Island Olympic Team. You can even see his art on the roads of Virginia with his design of the "Parrotheads" license plate.
After owning a martial arts school in Northern Virginia for over 17 years, J (Master J, a sixth degree black belt) has hung up his black belt and has decided to give his attention to his fine arts. He now creates art in his new home studio up in the Blueridge Mountains with his wife and two dogs.
J Douglas will always be an artist. He will always seek to take raw materials and turn them into something beautiful that inspires and touches your soul. It is what he was made for. Thank you for allowing him to share his passion with you.
