b. 1970 (USA). Lives and works in Edinburgh. Jeff studied theatre in the USA and glass painting at Edinburgh College of Art, where he still teaches.
He is primarily a painter on glass who creates environments of enigmatic meaning.
"I am fascinated by exploring areas between certainty and doubt, conveying a sense of the volume of space, and provoking a sensual experience of light.
"In a polarized political and social atmosphere I view ambiguous subject matter and visual presentation as political acts. By creating enigmatic works, I intend to seduce the viewer into being comfortable with ambiguity."
His images are built through multiple firings of enamels on many layers of glass,
allowing a depth of space within which objects ‘move’ as the viewer moves
around the piece as imagery on each layer shifts in relation to the others
and to the light.
He is currently exhibiting in 'Trove" at the Perth Museum and Art Gallery.
For two years running his work was selected by an international competition as one of 100 pieces to feature in "New Glass Review" 30 & 31, has been published in "Neues Glas/New Glass" and "Glass" magazines, and has been selected for the permanent collection in the GlasMuseet Ebeltoft in Denmark and North Lands Creative Glass.
In 2011 Jeff was one of 25 artists selected by CraftScotland to represent Scottish makers at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show.
