Fischer, Jake (MS Art, Photo, Yearbook)

I am excited to be joining the NPA family and very much look forward to meeting you all! I grew up Phoenix, AZ where received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in drawing and painting from Arizona State University. Upon completing graduate school, my wife, my hound dog and I spent 4 years living in New York City. I enjoyed participating in an art residency program with Art Students League of NY, working at an art conservation studio in Chelsea, and teaching at The New York Academy of Art while in the city. When our son was born, we moved back to Arizona and have been loving living in Flagstaff, and we welcomed our daughter Gwen to the family in May! I have been teaching art for nearly a decade at ASU, NAU and Coconino Community College and am thrilled to be here at NPA with you!

(In the 2 or so months since Gwen arrive we have not managed to get a family picture with all 4 of us)
