... My Mission Statement ...
... Artisan ...
My art education started at the Art Institute of Chicago, with more extensive training as an Illustrator and Commercial Artist while serving in the U.S. Air Force during the early nineteen sixty’s. After military service, I began my professional career working as an illustrator, commercial artist, freelance artist and art director in Chicago, for several large international corporations.
Then in the late seventies I decided to make a career change and pursue a new vocation, in the Jewelry Arts profession. After my education with the Gemological Institute of America (G.I.A.) the Jewelry business of Jas. A. Corrigan, Artisan was established, servicing the retail trade and the commercial jewelry industry with custom designed jewelry, jewelry manufacturing, repair or restoration requests, including a full line of lapidary services until my move to Arizona in 2003.
The move to Arizona was a lifelong dream, that turn into an opportunity for me to explore and express a variety of creative ideas and talents in several mediums i.e. metal, leather, clay, paint, wood, art instruction, videography and so on.
My current specialties are:
Jewelry and Sculpture.
