Jakob has always had a love for light and colour. Sketching and painting were self-taught; his skills enhanced and honed by way of workshops and courses in Ontario and the Maritimes.
Jakob enjoys portraits, landscapes and still life, in oils, watercolour and acrylics. He tries to apply the “less is more” principle in his work, while still capturing the essence of his subjects with simple brush strokes and harmonious colour. His art is a tribute to the Master Artist, to His honour and praise. Jakob lives with his wife Bonnie in beautiful Puslinch Township, Ontario.
