Jerry Hardesty

Jerry HardestyI was born in Osawatomie, Kansas.  I began singing at a very early age and eventually achieved a Bachelor of Arts in vocal performance.  After leaving corporate life, my passion for painting resurfaced and my desire to be expressive took precedence.  I am influenced by life experiences as well as by music.  I get excited when exploring new materials and techniques.  The creative process is incomplete until I give a painting a title.  I use ambiguous words and phrases as I prefer that viewers have their own experience with each painting.  Like Cecil B. DeMille, “Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.”
