Artist Bio
A lifelong resident of Idaho with summers spent roaming the hills of the South Fork of the Boise River, Jerry attended Boise schools, and graduated from Mountain Home High School. He majored in Botany at BSU when it was a two-year college. Being a practical person with a young family, Jerry became a master electrician. His skill and reputation earned him the respect and trust of the local farming and ranching community. He understands the soul of this independent community and has watched as commercialism and crowding infringe on the beauty of nature and change forever the way of life for so many. His love of the outdoors sparked his interest, and for over 30 years he has used his camera to capture the fading life scenes he has come to cherish.

Jerryís award-winning work has appeared in juried exhibitions throughout the Northwest and promoted conservation efforts. He has done commissioned work for the Mountain Home Chamber of Commerce, Mountain Home Air Force Base, and several regional businesses.

His credits include first place in photography in the 2006 and 2005 Wallowa Valley Arts Festivals, the Commemorative Poster for the 2004 and 2002 Three Island Crossing and the Boise City Arts Commissionís Public Art Collection. His work recently hung in the Idaho State Governorís office.
