Jeff is an Australian representational oil painter and dry media artist with a strong foundation in pen and ink. Largely self-taught, he pursued life as a draftsman after completing his secondary education which exposed him to pen and ink as an artistic medium. During this formative period he dabbled in oils preferring rather to work with pencil, charcoal, pen and ink.
Always interested in art Jeff cites the work of Rembrandt, Streeton, Sandorfi, Giotto as major influences and more recently Scott Waddell, David Gray and David Jon Kassan to name but a few.
His repertoire of subjects includes landscapes, still life and portrait/figure studies. He is currently developing his growing interest in portraiture while feeding a fascination with mixed media artwork.
