JAKE'S STORY

As a kid, I was always looking for crayons and paper to draw things I saw, such as cartoons, comic books, etc. I quickly realized that I had a passion to do art that never left me. Throughout grade school I delved into pencil art and gave myself over to this passion. I enrolled at Howard Payne University in Brownwood, Texas after high school, where I had intentions of becoming an artistic evangelist. It was there that I met my wife, Denea. Shortly after we got married and started our life together. Over time I realized my passion was quickly changing from pencil art to 3D art. I began wood carving and pipe-making and then eventually fully dove into sculpting.  I now sculpt full-time and travel around with Sculpting for His Glory Ministries, along with my wife and our 6 children. My purpose is to share God's divine nature through artwork.
