The Modern Michelangelo
"I believe in channeling my creative urges in order to produce unique and thought provoking artwork. The inspiration for my work comes from the miracle of life, spiritual insight, and the simplicity of living in the moment.
J. Reid Ink is fostered through a combination of my natural abilities, training, and experience, which allows my perspective as an artist to remain traditional yet contemporary. Art is how I battle against the indifference of humanity and offer new ways of viewing the world."
Jyremy Reid was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He received two undergraduate degrees - a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and an Associate’s in Commercial Art, from Oakwood University. He also received a Masters of Business Administration degree in General Management and Marketing from La Sierra University.
At the age of three, Reid began teaching himself how to draw. His mother recounts that since he was such an active child, she gave him art supplies to keep himself preoccupied. From then on he found his niche in the art world and taught himself how to draw and paint through diligent study and practice. It hasn't always been a smooth ride, but he has no doubt that his abilities are a gift from God. Reid’s main desire is to use his artistic gifts for the Master Creator, and to serve Him in the best way possible.
