Jeff's soft pastel pigments are meticulously blended to create dream like imagery of superb figurative realism.
He creates a smoky monochromatic enviroment that invokes a feeling of something soft and sexy wrapping itself around you as you close your eyes and take a deep breath.
“I call my pastel drawing paintings because I feel they are painting in pure pigment. I use pastel pencil 95% of the time. I love to draw and I consider myself a drawer more than a painter.”
