Growing up in Toledo. Ohio Jeff was focused on spending time with friends and playing sports. In his spare time, he would sketch and enjoyed trying to draw an exact replica of what he was looking at. After graduation, he decided to learn more about his art passion and attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, graduating in Visual Communication. He couldn’t capture the artistic passion as a graphic artist and with children to raise, he walked away from art to focus on another career. Painting an annual vest for the Toledo ZooToDo event and drawing characters for his children were the only art he was involved in. After a few life changes and wanted to re-invent himself, he was introduced to finger painting and re-discovered his artistic passion.
After a few commissions and varying subjects, Jeff is going to focus on sports finger paintings and creating a series of college football traditions.
