My name is Jason Berry. I am the artist and visionary of JBerry Designz. I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. I have been drawing my entire life from Looney Tunes characters to Afrocentric artwork. Drawing for me is like that one song you can listen to over and over. It brings me joy and life. In my opinion, drawing tells a story. It tells you a story about how the artist sees the world.
Here is my story:
In 2015, I was diagnosed with colon cancer. As anyone could imagine this life-changing diagnosis hit me like a ton of bricks and I found myself in a severely deep depression. Between the cancer and the depression, I was ready to give up on life. A dear friend of mine, suggested I go back to drawing because it had seem to become my coping method during life’s struggles. As much as I love to draw, I never knew it brought me healing and wholeness. When I started drawing again, I took my ordinary hobby and made it my passion. During all of my medical treatments, drawing and painting became my outlet and escape from my around-the-clock illness. The harder it got to fight through the illness, the more blood, sweat, and tears, I put into my artwork. My artwork has gotten me through some very dark and weary days and nights. And it has loved and embraced me through my recovery. However, I never thought in a million years, that just an ordinary hobby would become my joy, purpose and passion in life. Through Jberry Designz, I can share my story to the world through my eyes as an artist. Jberry Designz vows to always encompass passion, purpose, joy, and life in each and every design.
