“I try to create stories without words, hopefully with positive vibes and happy endings. When figures are included my aim is to arouse feelings and emotions. My paintings typically have a strong light source with depth and perspective. The end result is a "wish-you-were-here" feeling."
Jerry Steingraeber was born, raised and educated in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He began his professional career as a graphic artist for The Milwaukee Journal. Jerry remained at the newspaper for 38 years.
Upon retirement, Jerry pursued a fine art career doing paintings in oil and acrylic mediums. Subject matter has evolved from his love of nature to include landscapes, portraits and florals often with the inclusion of multiple figures. The idea of having a visual impact along with human interest is Jerry’s goal.
