Canadian, Jason Patrick Jenkins, is a passionate and skilled artist committed to the school of Contemporary Classical Realism. Born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada he has toured the world observing and painting what he sees and feels. He began his studies with a 4 year Bachelors in Fine Art from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2001, and more recently added 4 more years of study in the Advanced Fine Art Program of Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia, where he currently holds a Fellowship. In the Interim, he studied Glazing, Alla Prima painting, and The Dutch (or Flemish) Method. He has worked with grids, projectors, and transfers utilizing photo references, but his preferred method is free-hand, emphasizing gesture drawing and working in mass, from the live model. His remarkable work, painted largely in oil has been shown internationally. He currently holds Associate Living Master status with the Art Renewal Center. His work and his method have been detailed extensively in Fine Art Today and International Artist Magazine. He has been recognized in multiple national and international juried contests, and recently was awarded a grant from the Stobart Foundation.
