About Jon Moro
Jon Moro is a local artist with a passion for carving wood, painting and the world of sports. Originally from Rockport, Maine, Jon had an extraordinary high school career. He won a State Basketball Championship and played in two State Championship Baseball games. After playing at the collegiate level in both sports, he currently coaches at the pee wee and high school levels. His artistic passion developed after a brief hiatus from college, prompting him to change directions in life and pursue art in the form of sculpting and painting. In 2010 Jon graduated from University of Maine at Augusta with a BA in Art. Jon’s work ranges from figurine sculptures all the way up to life-size pieces, each carved and shaped from wood. The world of athletics is filled with unique characters, story lines and history, all of which create a well of inspiration to work from. Ultimately each piece examines the spirit of extraordinary human beings, and the passion with which we cheer them on.
Jon accepts commission work and has a degree in Art from the University of Maine at Augusta.
