Born and raised in Florida, Jon grew up on Terra Ceia, an island near the mouth of Tampa Bay, where he developed a bond with nature and all of its beauty. Jon enjoys exploring the mangrove islands near his home gathering ideas, which he translates to various images. Other sources of inspiration come from a collection of every day items and scenes.
Mr. Englert began drawing and painting in the fifth grade and continued to progress through college. He was awarded an art scholarship and his works received accolades in local art shows.
Mr. Englert is a well-versed artist working in different mediums. His favorite and most frequent medium is oil paint. “ Oil paint allows me to achieve a rich palate of color and textures which brings my subjects to life.” From florals to abstracts, “ I apply the paint to the canvas and paint with expression and intensity that allows the images to flow freely.”
