Jack Saylor
North Carolina native, Jack Saylor, received a degree in art from Barton College in Wilson, North Carolina. Upon graduating he moved to Spain and then Italy where he began his pursuits as an artist, while also working as a product designer for Sarreid, Ltd., a U.S. based home furnishings importer. Over the next 10 years Jack would travel back and forth between the U.S. and Europe working side by side with artists and artisans in their centuries old studios and workshops throughout Spain and Italy. During this time Jack became very knowledgeable in old world studio practices involving numerous art forms and materials utilized in the creation of the products he was designing, particularly in Florence, Italy, while at the same time continuing to further develop his painting skills. Living in Florence among some of the greatest art ever created, afforded Jack the opportunity to study intensely the art of Western and Northern Europe. In particular, the Italian Renaissance and Dutch 17th Century which remain sources he draws upon today. This rich, artistic environment, combined with his intense concentration on, and appreciation for the objects he was designing, and being created by master artisans proved a perfect breeding ground for the development of his work as a still life painter.
