Jack discovered his passion for art somewhat later in life. In preparation for attendance at the wedding of his foreign exchange daughter in Stockholm, Sweden, Jack bought an inexpensive digital camera at his neighborhood photo shop. He was immediately captivated by the art and craft of photography. His artistic pursuits now include not only photography, but also hand-embellished digital art. Jack donates all 100% of proceeds from the sale of his art to Children’s Mercy Hospital in his hometown of Kansas City.
