Jerry was born and raised in Brooklyn before moving to New Jersey. He owns an art school in Little Falls, NJ where he teaches pencil drawing to hundreds of students each year.
For the past 60 years, Jerry Winick has been an accomplished pencil artist. His drawings have won more than 300 awards and most people viewing his work for the first time think that they are photographs.
Jerry is a teacher of pencil drawing at his studio, Pencilworks Studio in Little Falls, NJ and at many outside venues in the northern New Jersey area. His drawings are also in private collections and museums.
With technology having a large impact in the art world and after some experimentation with his drawings, Jerry has discovered that besides having photorealistic drawings, his drawings can be converted into these computer generated pictures that are decorative and could not be created without the original pencil drawing first.
Jerry is not giving up his first love, pencil drawing, but he is also very excited about this new path.
