A self-portrait

Hello, I’m Steve Briggs a.k.a. Jeremiah, and this is my blog. I’ll be posting samples of my art and illustration work here for your enjoyment.

Here’s a bit about myself:

  I was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1955. I received my first formal art training at the age of 8 when my father enrolled me in the Wm. H. Gephardt School of Fine Art in Cincinatti, Ohio. For the next ten years I attended various art classes, until, at the age of 19, I joined the U.S. Coast Guard.

  I was honorably discharged in 1979, and with my father’s encouragement enrolled in the Columbus College of Art and Design. I was awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1983, and since that time have worked as a graphic designer, art director, freelance illustrator, faux finisher and mural artist. In 1991 I won a national publisher’s award for illustration while working as a freelance illustrator for Strang Publishing. I now live in Selmer, TN with my wife ( we have 8 kids and 10 grandkids). We also live on a hundred acres of land with a whole bunch of people who are trying to love each other, love God, and serve Him with their whole heart. I went back back to school to get my teaching license, a Master a Master of Arts in Teaching with a 3.93 gpa and now teach kids with learning disabilities at an inner city high school. For more info on our life see www.rosecreekvillage.com .

I hope you enjoy my work!

    Nice analogy between you and David. What is that you’re holding? We couldn’t figure it out. Is it a sling or something else?

      I’m not sure how you got an analogy out of my self portrait. The objects in my hand are some of my paint brushes and a painters bridge.
