Jerry Steingraeber has Midwestern roots being born, raised and educated in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Following completion of art classes at Layton School of Art in Milwaukee and getting an Associate Art Degree in Commercial Art from Milwaukee Technical College (MATC), he began his professional career as a graphic artist for The Milwaukee Journal (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). Jerry remained at the newspaper for 38 years.
Upon retirement Jerry pursued a fine art career doing paintings in oil and acrylic mediums. Subject matter has evolved from his love of nature to include landscapes, portraits and florals often with the inclusion of multiple figures. The idea of having a visual impact along with human interest is Jerry’s goal.
“I try to create stories without words, hopefully with positive vibes and happy endings. When figures are included my aim is to arouse feelings and emotions. I use the whole canvas preferring tight compositions with good drawing. Detail is suggested in a painterly fashion letting the viewers imagination complete the picture. My paintings typically have a strong light source with depth and perspective. The end result is a ‘wish you were here’ feeling”.
