Welcome To Jody Ball Art

April Snow, 15 x 22, pastel on Rives printmaking paper, Sold

Do you remember the spring of our never ending winter earlier this year? This pastel painting was inspired by the fields around my home as I took my morning walk. I had to photograph it and desired to somehow make the best of what could be a really negative situation if there had not been such beauty all around. This picture is sold, but I have others that are available in my studio and here in the gallery on my website.

Please contact me for an appointment if you would like to visit my studio or purchase something from my website.


“The picture that looks as if it were done without an effort may have been a perfect battlefield in it’s making.”

The Art Spirit, Robert Henri, 1865-1929


This website is dedicated to the memory of my parents Joe and Marcia Manning who believed in my artistic capabilities even as a young child. During that time they allowed me to take art classes from Donna Beavers, a prominent artist and teacher in my hometown. I still remember that first lesson in her front yard on a sunny day …”shadows”… and I teach those same important concepts I was taught in my first “real art class”, even now.
