Hello I’m Jonathan,
I grew up poor and home-schooled in the countryside of Missouri, but at the age of 5 my mother would give me stacks of paper and crayons to play with on the floor, and there I quickly discovered a natural talent of making my visions a reality on paper.

As a teenager, I built a binder of drawings that eventually won me a scholarship to the Kansas City Art Institute, where I graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in 2010.

Over the course of 8 years I refused to get any commercial work, and instead lived the cliche of the starving artist, searching intensely for my identity in my growing body of paintings and drawings.

The curiosity that guided my art as a child started ringing more clearly in my heart as a calling to Create Heavenly Earth, which gave me enough motivation to make $50,000 by convincing strangers to buy original pieces of art from me.

My strategy of approaching strangers to sell them pretty pictures lasted for about 8 months until one winter, I burnt up all my excitement and people stopped buying my art.

For 3 years I lived in a struggle with poverty and purpose, getting into deadend romances, found an easy gig churning out pizza into the drunk mouths of midtown KC, and searched my soul for answers to this strange and overblown calling to create heavenly earth with my art and how to do it in ways that produced satisfying results for everyone involved.

Since all my efforts to push my way to success weren’t sustainable, I learned to relax and let go of any pressure to make my calling into an agenda.

My calling turned into a magical phrase that reminded me of who I am and the gift of art I have to give, without complicating it, but just enjoying every oppotunity to serve people with my art, by illustrating their ideas.

As sure as the sunrise, I started to attract enough clients to make most of my living with my art.

Now I have fun wearing the costume of art sorcerer, which enables me to play my role of creating heavenly earth by making art that lifts the spirit and capturing your visions with art that speaks to your soul.

PS.

In 2015 during my constant soul-searching, I came across a magical system that maps the mechanics of our world, and it’s called Human Design, which arrived on the planet as a revelation to a mad man living off the coast of Spain in 1987.

That man changed his name to Ra Uru Hu and became the messenger of Human Design until his death in 2011, leaving behind a thriving community of like-minds discovering who and what we truly are.
