errie’s father, Matthew James Glasper, Jr., was his first and most influential art instructor. He credits his father for helping to open his eyes to the subtle color variations found in nature and his mother for nurturing his confidence through steadfast encouragement. He credits God for granting him freedom of expression.
Jerrie paints with oils and Acrylics. The under-painting is rendered in this wash of acrylics and allowed to dry. Next, oil “glazes” are built up in layers to create color interest. “I seem to have the tendency to join the techniques of realism, abstraction and impressionism,” says Jerrie, “whether it be portraits, wildlife or landscapes.”
Mr. Glasper also paints wall murals and faux finishes.
