MEET THE HERKYS
about the artist
Jason is in his twenty-first year as an Art Specialist with the Des Moines Public Schools and is currently at East High School. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Iowa and his Master’s Degree from Iowa State University (but we won’t hold that against him). Jason’s studio work, both personally and professionally, has a focus on drawing and painting. He is also a former University of Iowa Letterman and 1990 Big Ten Champion in football.
John built the little free library for Herky; he owned Technigraphics with his wife Carolyn for 30 years and is now retired. He is still active in Boy Scouts after 25 years and enjoys woodworking, canoeing and reading.
