Portrait of Inspiration
About the Artist:

Jay Davenport has always been interested in and excited by fine art especially animals and wildlife. With an encouraging push from his grandfather he began private instructions at an early age.
His enthusiasm and education in arts continued as he later earned an Associate's Degree in Painting and Illustration. His passion for Realism and Trompe L’Oeil led him to an apprenticeship at The Waichulius Studio.
Jay Davenport has participated in many exhibits across the country, some of the awards he has won include The Bosque Conservatory Silver Medal and numerous awards in Artist Magazine Annual Competition. His passion for art has also been shown in numerous publications including 2007 Strokes of Genius, The Best of Drawing.
With his strong foundation in representationalism, Jay’s desire to paint the comical and humorous side of animals and how the different things they do relate to human life. “If we would only step back once in awhile and observe and even laugh at ourselves occasionally.”
