Willow Grove, Pennsylvania
Jordan Spector, a native of Willow Grove, Pennsylvania discovered his passion for art a very young age. For most of his youth drawing was a daily practice, often spending hours sketching pictures of planes and other vehicles that were his passion as a child. Throughout his teenage years and up through high school, art class became a new outlet for creativity. From the beginning of his entry into educational art classes Jordan produced art that had a permanent impact in his schools.
In middle school multiple still life pieces done in art class were selected among the few to be hung up permanently in the Upper Moreland middle school hallways. In high school, art became a continuation of talents. Some of Jordan’s best pieces were submitted into a Montgomery County art show in which a still life work of his won first place for the 2011 Montco Art show, something Upper Moreland did not see too often. Ironically for Jordan, artwork was something of a secret hobby that many of his peers knew nothing about because Jordan was more well known for his talent as a football player. Through his 7 plus years playing football from middle school up to Division one football at Temple University, Jordan gained a new inspiration for his art.
Now a current Senior Physical Therapy Student at Temple University, Jordan plans to graduate this May and continue into graduate school to become a doctor of physical therapy. In addition, he also plans to continue cultivating his art business. Started a little less than a year ago, SpectorArt went from being just a hobby to a small business and now Jordan is creating new commission pieces on a regular basis. He primarily produces sports illustrations (Not only Football Players) and also enjoys trying out new ideas and genres. He works mainly in pastel or watercolor and ink but is always open to try something different and take on a new challenge.
