Working on "Self Potrait" a timeline public commission for The Scottsdale Public Art Council.
Jeffrey was born in Los Angeles in 1958. He attended Santa Monica City College and earned his B.F.A. from Art Center College of Design, in Pasadena, CA in 1983.
Exhibiting in New York since 1987 Jeffrey joined Forum Gallery, one of the leading representational galleries in the country with locations in New York and Los Angeles.
Jeffrey’s art is presently displayed in many private as well as public collections throughout the United States and Europe, and has had a distinguished one person Museum exhibition in February 2008, at Mesa Arts Center in Arizona. He has an ability to translate an idea/ design into a finished product with patience and incredible precision. His last large project was a three year 7' x 38' self portrait commissioned by The Scottsdale Public Art program.
Always having had an interest in sculpture, exacerbated while living in Rome years ago, he began to teach himself to sculpt in wax. Together with his design partner, Ann-Sofie Lakso (a.k.a. "Fred"), they began to create wearable art. A figurative painter, Jeffrey has always been drawn to the human form. Knowing that hands are the most difficult part of the body to paint and the need for challenge, he started there using his own hands as models. That was the birth of The Hand to Hand collection.
