Jerrold Belland

 

Jerrold (Jerry) Belland was born in 1947 to a farm family near Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.  His earliest and most enduring artistic influence was the Sunday Comics section of the Chicago Tribune

He graduated with honors in 1970 from the UW-Madison.  A Masters Degree followed in 1976 from the UW-Milwaukee.  

A public school art teacher for 34 years, Belland stayed involved in the art world and for decades kept long studio hours.

Today, he maintains a studio at the Racine Business Center where he cultivates a creative life.  This experience is, by turns, maddening, cruel, and emotionally fulfilling.
