Artist Jerry A. Padilla was born and raised in Las Vegas,NM.
Hello and welcome to my website. It is a privilege and honour to meet so many wonderful people as I create and share my art with them and give them many memories to enjoy. I am deeply humbled by the feedback, comments and testimonials that I recieve from clients and people in general about my art. I am a self taught artist who began drawing since I remember getting a hold of paper and crayons as a child. I don't remember writing on any walls though but don't quote me on that! Through out my school years I took a special interest in art. I took every art class as electives that I could. My interest in art even extended into my other classes where I would sketch and draw. Yes, I know I should have paid attention more in class but shhhh don't tell anyone! I took an interest in all forms of art including, pottery, glass etching, woodworking, woodburning, and scrollsawing which in addition to my fine art pencil drawing, I do on occasion. I pinpointed my skills in portrait drawings of people and animals because I began to appreciate more how each and every person that God created is unique and special. As I began drawing people I began to be drawn into every detail of the face, eyes, hair, facial expressions,etc that is uniqie to each individual. As I draw every detail of a person I can't stop wondering how creative God is because he is the ULTIMATE ARTIST. I am simply drawing on paper what He Himself has already created, so I give Him all the credit and glory! To hone my skills and draw at the level that I'm now at I simply have had years and years of practice. Every one of my drawing projects is a joy, and every client is a new friend.
I currently live in Las Vegas, New Mexico. I am happily married and have three beautiful children. My family is my inspiration for continuing my interest in art. They are all artistic as well. Here in Las Vegas New Mexico there is an unlimited amount of drawing subjects, people, places, animals, and wildlife. All of which are roads for my imagination.
I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy making it for you. Thanks again for visiting and May God Bless You! Come visit us online anytime!
