Jaz Davis is an Airbrush Illustrator & Graphic Designer with 17 years of professional work experience. He makes 100% of his living from his art.
His artwork can literally be found from coast to coast, through life size murals on freight
trucks, commissioned works on canvas and custom feature designs created for the water park and film industry.
He began his career in 2001 in the NYC art district of Canal Street and worked his way west. Apprenticing for established industry pros and learning the tricks of the trade. Currently
he is specializing in the discipline of digital sculpting and focusing on the artistic enrichment of the surrounding community. He takes every opportunity to pass on this valuable knowledge to young people. Hoping to one day kill the stigma that art “isn’t a real job”.
Jaz spent several years traveling the US- living and creating art in places like Shreveport La, NYC, Honolulu Hawaii and Oakland California. He currently reside in the Austin , Tx area.
His father, Chief Paul Spencer -Mansfield ROTC Instructor and his mother, Darron Spencer- Children’s Librarian at Desoto Parish Library – have always encouraged him to do what he loves and Never play the race card in order to gain sympathy or have an unfair advantage. But instead, they raised him to fight for every breath.
“Honestly, I can’t take credit for any of my artistic victories. It’s all been accomplished by the Grace of God! It is my duty to represent him in everything I do- because without Jesus- I am nothing. Once I recognized what my gift was- I decided to whole-heartedly , dedicate Every Available moment to the perfection of my craft- and NEVER look back”

Why are you always talking about God and stuff?
My faith is no joke to me. I truly believe in God. I truly believe that Jesus died for my sins. These two items are the catalyst for everything else in my life. Everything I create. Everything I love. My relationship with Jesus means EVERYTHING to me. Anything good that comes from me- is a product of this love.
Do you really make a living from ONLY art ?
Yes! By the Grace of God, I make 100% of my living from my artwork. At my day job ( At company X ) I am a waterpark designer. I spend 75% of my day drawing and sculting features and the remainder using programs lie CAD and 3DS MAX to make water park renders.
In my private studio, I create airbrush artwork for clients. - I love my life.
So why the Airbrush?
I originally wanted to tattoo but no one in NYC would apprentice me- I'm glad it worked out that way.
How long have you been painting professionally ?
By the Grace of God, September 2019 makes 17 years.
Do you really make a living as an artist?
Yep! 100 % of my income comes from art. Being considered a "starving artist" is HOG WASH! either you hustle or you don't eat. period.
