Making art primarily as a child/teenager, with little created in a 3 year period, Jeremiah painted on his first guitar in 2013 at CMU. Over the past 4-5 years, he has dabbled in a little bit of everything art related, ranging from Live painting during live music , to setting up a renegade house art-show in Mount Pleasant , MI. The Tree Love art collective music scene in Mt. Pleasant was an enormous influence on Jeremiahs re-entry into the arts.
