Aviation artist Jack Fellows grew up in a family with close aviation ties. During World War II, his father worked with Douglas (for Boeing) on B-17F and G production. In the early 1960s, Fellows also worked for Boeing, then enlisted in the Navy as a helicopter crewman. In addition, Fellows spent close to four years painting and refurbishing General Aviation aircraft on Washington's Renton field. Following graduation from art school, Fellows has spent most of his career behind an easel -- successfully combining his love of aviation with exceptional artistic skills and uncompromising devotion to realism. Fellows is a member of the Puget Sound Group of Northwest Painters, Pastel Society of America, U.S. Naval Institute, Air Force Association, as well as director of the CACTUS Air Force Art Project and former president of the American Society of Aviation Artists (1995-1997).
