About JT Hall - Artist
Hello, My Friends: Thanks for visiting my website. Art has been my passion since I was a child. From the age of 5 years old (so my Mom tells me), I have been drawing. She actually saved my artwork with the dates written down as they were done. My wonderfully talented Mom would take me to art lessons and allow me to participate with her as a student. As years passed we both learned and improved still attending art lessons, competing in local competitions even winning a few. It went without saying that I would continue in Fine Arts as I attended and graduated from The University of North Texas (UNT) in 1986. I took some extra time at UNT to get a combined degree with Graphic Arts Technology and Fine Arts. Utilizing the technical science part of my degree, I have been working as a Quality Assurance Manager; however, I can typically be found in my Art Studio every evening. Throughout the years I have continued to paint growing my portfolio, winning state and national art competitions, and acquired representation with an Art Gallery in 2014. Prior to that, I began offering my services drawing Pet Portraits as seen at (www.qualitycreations.weebly.com) and on the MY ART tab of this website. In late 2015, I was in an eye opening accident that ultimately changed my approach to creating art. As a result, I have been dedicating many paintings to hospitals and burn centers to display. These specially created artwork incorporates engraved plates with encouraging messages to hopefully encourage others that are suffering injuries. I am currently seeking addition gallery representation and am available for speaking events interested in truly discovering the healing power of art.
