Jeremy Lawrence ‘Spike’ Cash
Jeremy Lawrence ‘Spike’ Cash paints from his studio in Nebraska City, Neb. He is a self-taught artist with many influences. He hasn’t won any awards and doesn’t have any degrees or certificates in art, but he has a passion for creating art and sharing his experiences. He started Spike’s Art Room in 2013 after a friend noticed his painting and asked him to paint a memorial painting in honor of her horse. In 2015, he started Spike’s Art Project to honor his mom, who died from cancer in 2011. In 2015-16, he is donating 10 percent of his art sale proceeds to the American Cancer Society. He shows his art in the Apple Jack Festival in Nebraska City each September. What makes him different from other artists is also that he is legally blind. He doesn’t, however, let his disability limit his creativity and passion for art as he has sold more than 200 paintings in his first three years as a painter.
