My name is Jason Stella. I live in Missouri with my wife Jennifer. I have always been interested in art, especially as a child. The medium of choice at that point in life was pencil, charcoal or pen and ink.

Life happens and things change. My passion now is oil painting. The bulk of my work is landscape and wildlife painting. However, I have the privilege of working as a Physician Assistant in the Cardiothoracic Surgery department at the local hospital which has afforded me some unique opportunities to capture interesting compositions of the daily, "usual goings on" of the OR which I have been able to represent in Oils.   

I am self-taught from direct observation and an occasional how-to YouTube video.
