My work is devoted to telling the story of everyday life in urban settings around the world. I seek to capture moods and feelings in the settings and to take the viewer into that environment. When I am painting figures in these settings I try imagining what these characters are and what their story is. I come to my own conclusions about these people and try to convey what I think they are feeling. The end result that I shoot for is pleasing to the eye for its use of color, composition, and subject matter, but also something that transports the viewer to another environment and an interesting view into the human condition. Jeff's works of art are highly detailed large canvas paintings inspired by his travels around the world.
