J. P. Weiss (b. 1964)

J. P. Weiss paints quiet scenes of nature using a limited palette. His landscapes combine strong abstract designs, muted tones, solid drawing and a vintage, ethereal quality.

At an early age Weiss’s artistic ability was recognized and encouraged by his family and teachers. His father, a talented weekend painter, taught him the basics of drawing and painting.

Weiss studied landscape painting extensively with American painter Scott L. Christensen, and supplemented his education with museum visits, books, videos and various workshops.

J. P. Weiss paints in his studio and outdoors. He resides in Southern Nevada with his wife, son and loyal studio dogs.
