Description Only a few lingering clouds and diminishing winds remain from the violent storm of the night before. As the sun makes it's first appearance the landscape begins to transform from total darkness into an embellishment of light and color made more brilliant by the freshly cleansed morning air. The still turbulent winds have left the unbridled tropical waters in a state of total disarray enhancing the effect of the sunlight as the waves crash over and around the jagged rocks.
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.
