As far back as she can remember, there was always a box of crayons in her house. J. A. R. Stout had an appreciation for the arts beginning at a very young age. Whether it was dance, music, or art, she was always busy with something creative!
J.A.R. Stout’s artwork is informed and inspired by her surrounding locale, world travels, a love for children’s picture books, and of course her family. Though her work is ever evolving, pen & ink and watercolor are her most used media.
J.A.R. Stout attended San Diego State University, earning a BA in Art with Emphasis in Painting and Printmaking, and later studied at The George Washington University, earning an MAT in Museum Education. She currently lives in San Marcos, California and is actively involved in the San Diego Urban Sketchers.
