Over the past two decades, Jonathan has become one of the most well established local artists in the Maryland and Mid-Atlantic areas. Originally from Baltimore, he began drawing at a very early age, soon earning recognition throughout his school days for his mural paintings and pen and ink yearbook contributions.
Experienced in many different facets of the artistic field, Jonathan worked as a sign maker while earning his Computer Science degree with a minor in Art. After a fifteen-year career in electronic technical illustration and systems management, Jonathan pursued his passion and became an independent professional artist in 1993, specializing in highly detailed pencil renderings, portraits and prints.
Since 1993, his works have become well-known and commercially represented, having produced specialized works for several NFL athletes and such international organizations as Paramount Studios for whom he produced the 25th Anniversary Star Trek Commemorative Print. He is most notably known, however, for his public appearances in Ocean City, MD, where he has premiered over 30 images of local nature and Eastern Shore subject matter, earning a reputation as a top local artist, and the leading Blue Crab Artist in the State.
JB also operates his own company, JWB Art Unlimited, where he represents other artists in marketing and promoting their work.
