Hi, I'm Stephen Yavorski, AKA ArtJerk.

I'm a painter and draftsman based out of Northern New Jersey and New York City who is creating compelling, thought provoking artwork. I want to be a resource for people to learn how to create art, enhance their creativity, and strengthen their ability to draw and paint. The goal is to help more people become able to express themselves visually.

I have been instructing some awesome students for years and love it almost as much as I love creating artwork in the first place. Through platforms like Patreon, Twitch, and YouTube, I have been able to help a larger number of people across the globe and I am excited and inspired to continue to do so.

If you believe in my mission to create drawings and paintings that are stimulating and to help strengthen confidence and technical ability in aspiring artists, I invite you to be my patron.

Thank you so much for supporting what I do. :)

- Steve
