Jack Lepper, Palmyra, TN Member Since August 2012 Artist Statement Jack here. Also known as Big Jack or Jackson. Born in the small farming town of Othello, WA and raised in Fort Campbell, KY (home of the 101st Airborne Division and proud of it) until 2005 where from there I lived in Moses Lake, WA then moved back home to my beloved Tennessee . I currently reside in the tiny town of Palmyra, TN southwest of Clarksville, and I absolutely love the country life here. I'm an avid outdoorsman. Painting, drawing, horse racing, hunting, fishing, camping, golfing, playing my banjo and piano, and brewing beer are my passions. I'm a laid back, adventurous, straight forward, down to earth, and easy going man who has had the passion to draw portraits and paint (preferably post-impressionist style) since I was 5 years old. I most definitely appreciate the simpler things in life. I see the beauty in both the great outdoors and the concrete jungle as I like to incorporate such beauties into my paintings. I've enjoyed the pleasure of creating art through pencil and paints all my life and no matter how much or how little I make doing so, I will always follow my passion for art because I love it too much.
