Artist's Statement


"I make art using oil paint on canvas. My paintings are usually imaginary portraits of sad people with dark emotions. I utilize my own memories and experiences as subject matter when I paint. Sometimes I have an exact idea of what I am about to paint. Other times, I just see what appears, adding and subtracting until I feel the piece is finished."  Read More...

Critical Comment

"Jeff is a funny guy. In many ways. Color is everywhere - a thing that has spilled out from a mind consumed by the land of dreams. He takes it to the limit, and beauty is the result."
Paul Benton, 2011
