Jason Gregory is a Florida Native living in the Hudson Valley region of New York. He retired in 2017 with over 20 years of service as a New York City Law Enforcement Officer. After retirement he enrolled in the Visual Arts program at Westchester Community College to pursue his life long passion for art. After much internal debate, he switched gears from the Visual Art Program to Film, where he is currently a student. Earning a full grant for Academic excellence, he will graduate with an A.A.S. in Digital Filmmaking.
For his art, he gains inspiration from photos and his own imagination, as he tries to reconnect to the world through fresh eyes using representation as a form of self expression. His only desire is to add a small amount of beauty to the world. He is currently focusing his attention on landscapes, marine life, equine art, and Native American War Ponies. His style is rooted in classical art, utilizing wet-on-wet blending, impasto, and glazing to create his visual works.
While new to the Art scene, he has finished several private commissions, and brings his passion to the easel every day, improving his skills and honing his style with each new composition. Many of which are available to interested parties.
In the Fall of 2018, his self-portrait video project titled “Painted Inside a Bottle” received an Honorable Mention at the WCC Student Art Show. With his new found passion for movie making and film production, his goal is to secure a future in the film industry as a video editor for a local studio or production company.
