Jeff resides in Santa Fe since 2004 and spent 17 years in New England prior to moving to New Mexico. His media include oil, acrylic, watercolor, gouache and
printmaking. He has exhibited extensively in the United States and has won over 25 awards for his work in competitions and art shows. He has received various grants from the Cullen Foundation for his work.

“His work is characterized by his bold colors and his use of broad patterns that simplify his subject matters, infusing them with a timeless quality. His landscapes reflect serenity by his masterful use of light, while his Boston cityscapes portray in their daring hues the dynamics of a busy city,” writes Elizabeth Bradley, owner of the Artdail gallery. His work has received national and international recognition and is among distinguished private and public collections, including Dr. M. G. Buthelezi, Minister of Home Affairs, Republic of South Africa.

He is currently the sole proprietor of Artist LLC and owner of the Art Exchange Gallery, with locations in both Santa Fe, New Mexico and also in New England. He lives in Santa Fe, operates the galleries and continues his personal art career. Jeff and Janie (married since 1973) have two grown children, Aaron and Leslie. They have four grandchildren: two grandsons, Ronan and Bryce and two granddaughters, Emily and Hannah.  Jeff says, “I am living my dream”.
