Jay Harmon Bio

Additional Information

I’ve lived in Palm Beach County since the 1950’s where I’ve worked in several art-related occupations, including Art Director for WPEC-TV channel 12, graphic artist for the Palm Beach Post, and most recently as an art instructor at  the School District of Palm Beach County for 14 years.


My style of art is detailed realism.  I work in graphite and colored pencils to create portraits and illustrations for which I’ve won several national awards. 


Currently, my art can be seen at the Heart of Delray Gallery in Delray Beach, Florida. 


Although my work can be time-consuming, I painstakingly work for accuracy and each of my renderings can take more than 60 hours to create.
