Hello, my name is John Froehlich, a professionally trained & schooled full-time artist. My work has been shown & collected internationally. Proudly a Jersey shore resident now, I was born and raised in Manhattan, where for many years, I have seen and drawn many of the Jazz & Blues greats, up close & personal, at such venues as the Village Vanguard, The Blue Note, and Birdland.

At an early age, my grandfather, who played guitar for the Dorsey brothers and on Broadway, was instrumental in my great love of jazz & blues music. Which has definitely fueled the passion in my art.

With over 700 Jazz & Blues paintings in my portfolio, I have produced art work for cds, music publications, posters & t-shirts. Numerous commissions have been gladly accepted, for restaurants, homes and offices, worldwide!

“Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. If you don’t live it, it won’t come out of your horn. They teach you there’s a boundary line to music. But, man, there’s no boundary line to art.” - Charlie Parker
