Jerry LoFaro has employed his lifetime interest in dinosaurs, animals, fantasy, and art history into a long and successful career as an illustrator and licensing artist. The recipient of many prestigious awards, including the Gold Medal from The Society of Illustrators of NY, he has created book covers for all the major publishers along with countless advertising projects for clients such as Aflac, Claritin, Purina, Discovery Channel, Time Magazine, Coca Cola, Dole Foods, Minolta, Disney, and so many others. He is particularly renown for the scores of tea boxes he created for Celestial Seasonings Tea over a twenty-year period, including the reimagining of company icons Morning Thunder and Sleepytime Bear.
Jerry loves teaching, and has been a highly regarded and popular instructor at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC as well as New England College in Henniker, NH. He was head of the Digital Illustration program at The New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester from 2010-14, and has enjoyed mentoring many aspiring artists throughout his career.
In recent years Jerry has also evolved into an award-winning fine art, nature, and concert photographer, and has been the official photographer for The Tupelo Music Hall in Derry, NH since 2017. His first book of photography, “Abandoned Vehicles of New Hampshire:Rust In Peace” was published in 2021. Jerry has been the subject of articles in The New York Times, Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, The New Yorker Magazine, Manchester Union Leader, Concord Monitor, NH Magazine, Advanced Photoshop Magazine, Prehistoric Times Magazine and Airbrush Action Magazine, where he was a longtime contributor. He was very happy and honored to appear twice in extended segments on the very popular New Hampshire Chronicle tv show - once featuring his art career, and the other time as a photographer & author!?
Born and raised in Farmingdale, NY, Jerry spent his formative years as an illustrator living in NYC and working out of loft studios in Soho and Tribeca. Having always aspired to a country existence, he and his wife Kathleen and son Gregory (a US Marine) have lived in Henniker, NH since 1996. And finally, their life is now joyfully punctuated with grandsons Hudson and Brady!?
