Description As the bright morning sun rises in the Eastern sky, the mighty Jaguar makes his way to a familiar vantage point overlooking his territory deep in the wilderness. He announces his presence with a loud roar that echoes through the canyon alerting all living creatures that he has, once again, established his rule and dominance and is ready to take on all challengers.
Jerry Sauls, St. Johns Member Since November 2013 Artist Statement Art and the natural world have been the driving forces that have shaped Jerry’s life and career. Self-taught, Jerry can not remember a time when he wasn’t painting, studying art and the great artists, or developing an affinity and never-ending infatuation with the phenomenal beauty of Nature.
Since the early eighties Jerry has been exhibiting and selling his artwork, gaining both success and recognition as his work became known. In July 1999 this success finally enabled him to leave his job as a Computer Applications Manager and Systems Analyst, and devote himself full time to his artistic career. His first task was to build a home to accommodate his lifestyle, with a studio and gallery to exhibit his work. Next Jerry used his experience in the field of technology to design and build a website to promote his work (www.jerrysauls.com).
Always seeking inspiration and development of his skills, Jerry has travelled extensively. His work includes studies from the Hawaiian Islands, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Europe and Alaska.
Collectors of Jerry Sauls’ work appreciate the fine detail, perspective and imaginative use of light simulation with which he portrays an innate understanding of his chosen subjects.
