WHAT'S NEW IN 2021:

In March I founded Highlands Arts Alliance, a not-for-profit organization with the mission of supporting and promoting the arts in the Town of Highlands, New York (my hometown!)

 

While initially the idea was to merge it with Cornwall Arts Collective and make it one all-encompassing group for the area, I decided it would be better for each town to have their own arts organization that can tailor their functions to their respective communities.

It's still in the early stages of development but has no lack of plans for the future!

This year sees the premiere of Cornwall Arts Collective's very own zine!

 

I developed and designed the first issue, "Renewal", to act as a re-introduction to the group as well as showcasing some of the members' artwork from their recent online exhibition. 

A PDF version of the zine is available on the group's website and free physical copies can be found at 2 Alices Coffee Lounge and Cornwall Coffee Co. & Mercantile in Cornwall, New York.

Read articles, interviews and snippets about me from local media in the PRESS section.

Jay is an artist, graphic designer, and sometimes writer, living in New York's beautiful and historic Hudson Valley. He is the creator of the limited edition R.M. Tarot Deck and is available for fine art commissions. In 2018, he founded Cornwall Arts Collective, an organization dedicated to promoting and supporting the arts in Cornwall, New York. And in March of 2021, he founded Highlands Arts Alliance to promote the arts in the Town of Highlands, New York.

He studied art and graphic design in high school, media production at SUNY Rockland and graphic design with the Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online Division.

Drawing is Jay's favorite form of expression, but he also works in collage, loves to paint and craft, as well as experiment with digital photography and illustration. His work has been described as "mystical" and doesn't shy away from metaphysical, occult, and paranormal themes. Inspired by the symbolic art of alchemy and tarot, 1960's psychedelia and pop art , Surrealism and Art Deco, even comic books have had a major impact on Jay's artistic evolution.
