"My designs are about building the painting as much as painting the painting...involving hours of construction." - Jason Wilson

Jason Wilson started creating art early in life with the influence of his mother to guide him. With his current style, he starts by developing his paintings on grid paper to scale. His desire is for his paintings to be so technically flawless and precise that they are stunning. Jason loves "tricking" the eye and creating color illusions inspired by quilts and the patterns found around him.
