Jack Stern's landscape paintings capture the sense of the place.  Viewers often comment that they feel like they have been transported to the location - a lake, a mountain top or a meadow.

Encouraged by his grandmother, Jack began oil painting when he was just fourteen years old.  Within a few months he started formal art instruction with William E Steinbach in San Diego, California.  At sixteen, Jack sold his first painting - launching a lifelong career in art.

Returning to his home state of Colorado in 1976, Jack bought a donkey (LBJ) and built a unique "pack-box" for transporting wet canvases.  He was then able to venture into the high Rockiew and enjoy extended plein air painting treks.  Jack sold his artwork in a gallery he operated in Silverton, Colorado.

Jack currently lives with his wife in a remote cabin in western North Carolina near the Black Balsam Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
