Success consists of going from failure to failure without a loss of enthusiasm.”

All prints and paintings are original artwork by Gerardo “Jerry” Cobarruvias, a native of Corpus Christi and current professor of art at Del Mar College. Inspiration is found in nurturing the development of his printmaking and painting students on their own quest for artistic vision…a truly lifelong process.

Black Jade Studio was established in 2018. These works are the result of the artist’s search for uniqueness and clarity on paper/canvas. Abstraction, figurative, and landscape works are used as vehicles for his art. Preferred art mediums include oil, watercolor, intaglio, monotype, and lithography.
