Actor, Artist, Founder of Share Art Heal. Jet, an Austin based actor started to paint because he wanted an outlet to create visual art. It takes 100s of folks to create a television show or a film. And then the actor has to book a role to participate in the project. Writing, another of Jet's creative passions is created in black and white with words on a computer. Painting can be done whenever the inspiration strikes.
