Man of Many Talents
Billy Jacobs was born in Detroit, spending most of his life growing up in Ohio with his four older sisters and one younger brother. Creative from the very beginning, he is a self-taught artist who has many artistic ventures to keep him busy. After working for over 20 years in the craft and gift industry, he came to know a thing or two about folk art style. Billy uses a variety of paint mediums currently and even has worked with digital forums. In addition to being a great artist, he also uses his time for creating imaginative fonts, songwriting and puppetry.
At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, we have a large collection of Billy Jacobs artwork from charming to primitive and everything in between. It is a true testament to the skills of an artist when you can look at two prints side by side, see their similarities, and also see how much of a range the artist has.
