Jeremy Winborg is best known for his figurative work of
Native American subjects that blend realism with abstract backgrounds. Winborg
has had a passion for creating art since he was a child. He grew up in Utah
working in an art studio alongside his father who was an illustrator. Winborg
began receiving awards and honors at a young age. "Being an artist was the
only profession I ever considered when I was growing up."
Winborg was inspired to start painting Native American
figures when his Navajo niece, Layla, was born. His work is focused on creating
Native American pieces that preserve a bit of history on each canvas. His
paintings feature Native Americans dressed in traditional, authentic clothing
with a focus on being historically accurate. Winborg is well-known for his bold
brushwork and pallet knife work on his interesting, colorful backgrounds. He
enjoys the juxtaposition of the realistic portraiture and abstract, loose
backgrounds, "I like to go wild with my backgrounds. The abstract
backgrounds are exciting to look at and there's a peacefulness about the
figures and faces where your eye can rest."
Winborg and his wife, Danielle, have made Cache Valley, Utah
home. They live there with their five children. Winborg enjoys the outdoors.
Fly fishing, rock climbing and photographing beautiful landscapes are his
favorite pastimes when he’s not painting.
