Jon collects his inspiration from the nomadic existence that comes with being a member of a Navy family, which provided him with the opportunity to see and appreciate the country. His dad finally settled in the beach town of Carlsbad, CA when Jon was twelve. Living by the ocean was a huge inspiration. "You really have a great love for the California Impressionist when you live here," says Jon. Jon's formal academic training includes Palomar College & Long Beach State University (B.F.A. Illustration), along with being President of the Society of Illustrators L.A., 1993-1994.

His emotions and love stem from his Italian family background, and is reflective in his art. These passions show his versatility in a gallery of work featured at The Remington Steakhouse, St. Regis Hotel in Houston, TX.; "The Dance" from Spanish Colonial period at the St. Regis lobby bar in Century City, CA; to a contemporary collection seen hanging in the "On Broadway Night Club", San Diego, Ca and the Waterfront Grill Restaurant, Ameristar Casino, Vicksburg, MS. These and other projects have given Jon the creative challenge to be versatile, along with the freedom to express himself. As a result, Jon has been allowed to move beyond the boundaries of painting in one style.

Artistically, he finds his versatility refreshing and a journey, while at the same time an asset for pushing himself in new directions. He feels that "art is a great reflection of how we experience all the nuances of life."

Working on the exterior of the Reserve Casino in Henderson, Nevada and painting an 81-panel African mural of the Serengeti Plains (8' x 30' each panel), Jon said "painting outside in those conditions for four months was the most demanding and challenging thing I have ever done, but also the most rewarding."

Jon currently resides in Laguna Niguel, CA with his wife Jo Beth and two children Sammy Jo and Nicholas. He operates his studio from there with clients all over the country. He enjoys frequent visits to his family in Carlsbad, tennis and fraternizing with old colleagues.
