Jake is someone who was born into a long line of artists in his family, starting with his father
who built his own motorcycle as well as the 2 1/2 story house that he grew up in, his grandfather
who is a published author and expert publicist, and his grandmother was a seamstress in Italy and
NYC, a great uncle who was the cartoonist for Playboy for over 25 years, a great grandfather
who was a master violinist in Ireland, and his other great grandfather who was a master marble
sculptor in for royalty in Italy. He has been around their work his whole life but now it is time for
him to continue the family’s legacy in the modern world we find ourselves in today.

up in Brooklyn, NY to pursue this passion through the street school of freelance art and graffiti.

University where he obtained a Studio Art Degree with a concentration in Photography and
Communications. From there, he started his business Jake Mazzone Photography and
