About The Santa Fe Madonna

Jacob's unique style of collage is entirely his own, especially when considering his addition of a round abalone shell adorning the figure's neck.

His 2 CDs demonstrating his performing art abilities are titled:

  • Power to the Peephole     (2006)
  • Wolves & Lambs for Love  (2007)
