Jacob Lovett is an American artist most notably known for his contemporary western oil paintings. Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas Lovett's interest in art was present but was nothing more than a hobby growing up. His mother always encouraged him to pursue his artistic interests but he had never fully committed to this idea until after he graduated from the University of Mississippi in the spring of 2017.
During the spring of 2018 he discovered his previously unknown talent for painting after a friend of his asked him to paint a commission piece for their family. Never painted before, he accepted this project without any proper training, purchased the required materials and looked up "How to Paint" on YouTube. After days of work he delivered them the finished piece. After that moment he had a feeling that this was something that he wanted to pursue further which led him to seek out proper training and went on to study under Laert Aleksi Xhaferi of Studio Sabka.
After a few hours of weekly instruction from 2018-2020, Lovett turned his hobby into a full time profession. In 2021, Lovett became a full time artist while simultaneously opening his shared studio space, Muse.
As Lovett takes on this new business venture he continues to expand his art portfolio on a daily basis.
Today, Lovett works primarily in oil paints, with a focus in contemporary western subject matter, using old masters techniques in a minimalistic approach to achieve aesthetically clean, yet strikingly realistic compositions.
