Jonathan’s day job is as collections curator at the HFMA, but in his REAL life he’s an artist. We did a studio visit to see the rest of the oregano series (one currently on view in the Mayor’s Invitational) and see the new work, both two and three dimensional.

great images!! Jonathan’s work is exceptionally wonderful. His sculpture is great and now I’ve seen more of his paintings! He is on my Top Five Favorite artists list. thank you, Bonnie.
