After studying art at North Tyneside College, Jeff became self employed as a professional artist in 1984. After exhibiting in a Northumberland gallery, his artwork was taken to the London Affordable, where he had a sell out in one day. Things began to snowball and he exhibited in Edinburgh and in Dublin with equal success. Over the past two years, he has witnessed a change in his work. He feels that he has honed his efforts and skills into compositions that really express and convey a certain atmosphere or moment.
