Jamie Clafferty, a Parkville native, creates Ravens artwork and was recently mentioned on social media by injured cornerback Lardarius Webb.
A local artist has taken his hobby to a new level, creating the artwork you see in the gallery above—and it's drawn some attention from at least one player on the Baltimore Ravens. Jamie Clafferty, a Parkville native and die-hard sports fan, creates and sells these original pieces when he's not busy working 60-hour weeks at Beltway Fine Wines. Despite having no formal training as an artist—Clafferty is an Army vet with a degree in marketing who was actually denied admission to the George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Towson—he's able to recreate realistic images of Baltimore Ravens moments using charcoal on canvas. Each piece, he said, takes him between 4 and 10 hours. Clafferty said he's gotten some attention from …
