Jared began engraving thirty-five years ago as a student at California College of Arts & Crafts (now California College of the Arts) in Oakland, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. An accomplished pen and ink illustrator, and an avid stamp collector in his youth, he took naturally to the engraving medium. His work has exhibited both locally and internationally and has been recognized with numerous awards.

Jared enjoys a reputation as one of the very few and foremost artists practicing engraving today. He recently served as President for Honolulu Printmakers, and was selected as this year’s feature artist (Gift Print Artist) for the Honolulu Printmakers 83rd Annual Exhibition.

Jared and his wife Connie, a High School Art Teacher, have one son named Charles, age 27, an excellent young artist in his own right, who currently flies the carrier-based FA-18E Super-Hornet for the US Navy.

Jared provides introductory Art instruction for the DOD sponsored Warriors in Transition program for soldiers stationed at Schofield Barracks on Oahu.
