Artist Jon Mort is widely recognized for his startlingly realistic colored pencil and large-scale graphite images. Spending his summers at his studio in Port Clyde, he creates work inspired by the rugged coast, natural beauty and wildlife of Maine.
Captivated by design, Mort received fine art and classics degrees from Franklin and Marshall College and his master’s in architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design. Mort has provided a selection of signed, limited-edition prints of his piece “Island World” to support the work of the Island Institute, available at Archipelago.
“I’m humbled to be featured [on the back cover of the 2020 Island Journal] and thrilled by this opportunity to collaborate with an organization committed to sustaining a vibrant Maine coast,” Mort said.
