A 53 year old fine artist, the medium Jeffrey has used, for over 20 years, is colored pencils. His work has been featured in COLORED PENCIL Magazine, CP Magazine, and Lehigh Valley Style Magazine (article). Since 2013, Jeffrey has had four solo shows, been included in many group shows, and juried into two international group exhibits. Since the summer of 2017 he has been supplementing this work with oil painting.
Jeffrey teaches colored pencil and introduction to drawing workshops in the area. Along with showing his work, he gives colored pencil demos and artist talks.
“Conveying beauty and the uplifting is a major focus. As a Christian, it is a joy to me that creativity points to our Creator. Art studies and highlights His amazing handiwork with a fascination of the world and the sublime God who made it. The overall theme of my work seeks to bless others with peaceful tranquility in a world full of stress.
As a lifelong sufferer of social anxiety, which in the majority of the past had me isolated alone, my art has played a key role as a catalyst to connect with the community. Despite these struggles, a sense of peace is predominant in my art”.
Jeffrey is also writer of the blog, Living in the Light of Grace. He resides in Bangor, PA., with his wife Cherie.
