When picturing an artist’s roots, the automotive industry may not be the first career that comes to mind. But that is where Sedona painter Jack Durrwachter first developed many of his ideas for his well-known abstract art.abstract painter Jack Durrwachter is dwarfed by one of his giant paintings of ellipses. A Michigan native, he moved to Sedona over 30 years ago and uses his background as an automotive designer to enhance his art. Three of his paintings are currently on display at the Sedona Area Guild of Artists gallery in West Sedona at the Old Marketplace.

Durrwachter got his start at General Motors in Michigan. He was entered in an in-house education program that focused on design. Once he completed the course, he was selected out of his group to become one of the lead drafters at the Fisher Body Ornamentation Studio.

“When I got out of school, [GM] picked me because I could draw free-hand,” Durrwachter said.
