About the Artist
Location: Seattle, Washington
Born and raised in Twin Falls, Idaho, Jason Sinclair Astorquia is the son of educators and is descended from bankers, politicians, ranchers, farmers, business people, common people, proud people, matriarchs, Scots, and Basques. Originally trained at Yale University in Applied Mathematics, he found that his professional life that was consumed with business operations never quite fit and was forever pursuing creative endeavors “on the side”. Jason has written music, poetry, and screenplays, and attended the Seattle Film Institute in 2003 before beginning to paint a few years later. In 2012 he transitioned to be a full-time working artist, life coach, and inward travel guide. Contributing to several benefit auctions, the proceeds of Jason’s work have benefitted Deep Roots, Alki Elementary School, DAWN (Domestic Abuse Women’s Network), PAVE (Partnership for Action, Voices for Empowerment), and the Alzheimer’s Association.
