Jon Wos

Jon Wos, born in Lena, Wisconsin, in 1981, was diagnosed at birth with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a congenital condition that is manifested by weak bones, leaving people who have it very susceptible to fractures. Though this condition limited his physical ability, it heightened his sensitivity to the world around him, and, out of his love of creation, Jon began drawing as a very young child. His artistic expression blossomed as he grew older, and by the age of 11, he was painting with oils. At 16, he started working with glass.

When Jon was a sophomore in college, he won a $10,000 grand prize in a national competition for disabled artists. In 2005, Jon graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in drawing, painting, and sculpture.

Mr. Wos has exhibited his various forms of artwork throughout North America, including the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C., the Chicago Cultural Center, and the Joseph D. Carrier Gallery in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In addition, Mr. Wos’s work is on display in such public collections as the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and Ripon College, and in the private collection of US Senator Herb Kohl.
