Jason Jarava was born in Baltimore, Maryland and began painting at an early age. He was encouraged by his parents and did much of his early work around Loch Raven, painting luxuriant landscapes, tall trees and reflective waters. He received his BFA from Arizona State. The artist’s style is distinct. He blends the crisp, detailed, exacting technique of realism with the calm simplicity of contemporary art. The result is almost dream-like. Jarava works and lives in Phoenix, Arizona with his wife Stacy and their three young children. His work can be found in collections throughout the United States.
