Ralph S. Jacobs

Ralph S. (Stoney) Jacobs is a native of New Hampshire, and as the son of two portrait painters, it seemed he was destined to be an artist himself. Largely self-taught, he attended the Massachusetts College of Fine Art.As many portrait artists, Stoney is also a very fine still life painter and is known for his miniatures. Oprah Winfrey is included in his list of collectors, both private and corporate.His portrait commissions include Jean Shaheen, the former governor of New Hampshire, the former Speaker of the House of the New Hampshire legislature, the principal of Phillips Exeter Academy, and the headmaster and his wife of St. Paul’s School, Concord, New Hampshire.
