Jeff is a Scottish-Canadian artist, living and working in Vancouver. Trained as a geologist, he transitioned from the resource industry to a full-time art practice in 2013.
Jeff produces acrylic paintings that are immediately recognizable from their dynamic compositions, unusual subjects and vibrant colours. Inspiration comes from close observation of chance encounters, particularly those quirky aspects of life that generally pass unnoticed.
Jeff exhibits extensively in public galleries in BC, Alberta and WA State. Awards include Finalist in the inaugural Saltspring National Art Prize and two DTES Grants from the Vancouver Foundation. Jeff has completed residencies at the Booth in Shetland, Parks Canada’s Art in the Park and the Wallace Stegner House.
