Jordan Blackstone - Fine Art Photographer/Artist
Who am I? I’m a Photographer who loves to paint and a painter who loves photography.
Growing up in Alberta, I was surrounded by the wild beauty of the prairies and the ruggedness of the Rockies. With these as my backyard, they have influenced my style and given me a strong appreciation for the raw beauty of the life around me.
I’ve always been creating art in one shape or form since I could remember, but the life event that propelled me forward in my current journey would be coming face to face with the “C” word. In 2010, cancer robbed me of one of my great joys, my oldest brother, my best friend. To help me cope with my sorrow, my family rallied together and helped purchase my first dSLR camera. This allowed me reclaim the wonder and pleasure of being out in nature and experiencing its healing ways.
Later that same year, I established, “Imagine That! JB Fine Arts.” The focus of my art is to bring to life those subjects I capture with my camera or paintbrush. I want others to see the natural beauty that I see all around me and to understand that life is precious, we should enjoy every moment we have in it.
Since I can remember, the written word has played an important part in my life. When hearing a poem or a song that is special to me, it takes me back to the moment in time and I am able, if only for an instant, to relive the emotions that were embedded in that memory. This is why I connect each piece I create with a poem, quote or song, thus putting a piece of myself into it - through each brush stroke or image captured – they become “Works of Heart.”
Don’t try to fit me into a particular genre for I am constantly growing and learning. While wildlife and nature are my main focal points, I also enjoy working on portraits and graphic design. Each one presents its own unique challenges.
Currently I’m working on a composition for a very special group of people known as Hearties…but shhhh they don’t know it yet. Plus, collaborating with a very talented writer on illustrating a children’s book she is writing.
