About Jerry Anderson
My name is Jerry Anderson. I have been drawing and painting since I was a young kid. During my teens I became a commissioned artist. I loved to create artwork for people and companies. 25 years later I still love it. There are very few things in life like connecting with someone emotionally through a piece of custom art.
I believe I got my artistic talent from my Mom who is also a talented artist. She loved drawing horses and people and I loved drawing cars and airplanes. Eventually I began drawing people and animals and fell in love with wildlife. Eagles were my favorite thing to draw. I won awards and ribbons for the eagles I drew, but they were not something people wanted to pay for. The eagles were just pictures everyone thought were awesome.
I have had artwork displayed at the Eccles Community Art Center, published in the art publication Weeds, the Standard Examiner periodical several times, the GDOC, the Reflections, and homes everywhere.
My custom artwork also carried over into commercial work. I have designed advertisements and logos for several companies since 1992.

I also work with Pen
Working with Pen instead of pencil requires a whole different set of drawing skills. My custom artwork in pen is very different than the pencil drawings. I only ventured into pen out of curiosity and found myself loving it.

I also design Headstone Monuments
I was hired as an artist for a Headstone Monument company that didn't stay in business long. I loved doing the custom artwork so much that a friend of mine and I started our own monument company called Nationwide Monument. Check out my GRANITE page here to see some of my custom art
