Jon believed that all art makes a statement, and dealt primarily with the environment and its ecology. He used common refuse - such as the automobile bumper - and reshaped it to represent our disappearing wildlife. He considered wildlife to be one of the most visible victims of industrial manufacturing.
His art included sculpture in bronze and steel, painting, printmaking and jewelry.
Jon’s work has exhibited throughout the west and is in collections across the country. He had a BA in Psychology and Sociology and a MFA in Painting & Sculpture.
Born in 1940, he died in 2001.
