Jerry Jordan



Jerry Jordan was born on May 4, 1944 to a west Texas farming family. His first foray into the art world came at 13 when his mother gifted him a paint-by-numbers picture set, which he proceeded to complete, and then used the leftover paint to create his first original paintings.

Jordan first came to Taos, NM at the end of the summer in 1963. Today, Jordan continues to draw inspiration from the Taos masters. His paintings are rich and vivid, seeming to capture not only beautiful images of the Taos landscapes and Pueblo life, but also the feeling of Taos itself.
