The Artist

Billy Jacobs, a long time resident of Ohio, started his career in the Country Gift Industry in the early 80's as a woodcrafter and designer.
Billy designed as well as manufactured thousands of country and primitive products throughout the 80's and 90's.

In the 2000's Billy turned his focus from woodcrafting to painting. His early folky primitive style was well received by his customers. Billy continued to refine his painting style and in late 2006 switched from acrylics to watercolors and began his journey painting the rural American countryside.

Since then Billy's artwork has taken the market by storm, his depiction of the simple American lifestyle and days gone by bring a nostalgic comfort to the viewer and have made him one of today's most sought after artist.
