Born in the Philippines, Manny Jomok grew up and was educated in the Central New Jersey Shore area and received a BA degree in Art Education from Monmouth College, West Long Branch NJ. He is also State of New Jersey certified to teach art. After serving as a Naval Photographer, Manny taught art to disadvantage youths for programs in New Jersey, Maryland and Maine. His art career as a watercolorist blossomed after taking workshops with nationally renowned watercolor artists, Pat Dews, Frank Francese, Robert O'Brien and painting and exhibiting with the Plein Air Painters of the Jersey Coast. He has also studied in recent years with Timothy Thies and Don Andrews. This award winning artist retired from the US Postal Service in 2008 and along with his wife embarked on an adventure to see the country in an RV, traveling as far as Alaska in 2009. During his four and half years of travel as a full time RV'er, Manny sought out and painted with various plein air groups throughout the country. Manny describes himself as a plein air watercolorist and is a winter resident of Boynton Beach FL and spends his summers in Bar Harbor ME.

"The attempt to capture in my paintings how light affects the color, forms, atmosphere and mood found outdoors on site, becomes an alluring challenge to me. Watercolor's transparency, subtle and gentle effects can produce a creative expression that's unique and captivating. Associating with plein air artists throughout the country aligns me with an artistic style found in the representational and impressionistic tradition."

Manny's art pieces are found in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada, England and Australia. Besides teaching watercolor in the Palm Beach County, Florida area, he exhibits regularly in Maine and Florida and is currently represented by the Frederick Gallery, Spring Lake NJ and the Works of Hand Artist Gallery, Winter Harbor ME.
