Ryan Kenneth Jacobson (of Tioga, ND) is a twenty-something artist who's favorite work is pencil drawings. He credits his mom for passing on any of the artistic abilities he possesses. For much of his teenage years, drawing was an enjoyable hobby. After completing his bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of North Dakota in 2006, Ryan worked in the Minneapolis, MN area for 5 years before moving to Fargo, ND in 2012. Since moving back to ND, he has picked up drawing once again and found a niche in personal portriats. Though not extremely experienced, he has enjoyed creating portraits that are lifelike but candid and unaffected.
