Still Life with a Tale to Tell
“At the heart of each of my paintings lies a story. Some are overt, and some are subtle. Some have clear plots and visual puns, others simply evoke a literary feeling or poetic mood. Above all else, the goal is to wrap the story in a shimmering and beautifully crafted painting. I invite you to spend some time with each one and see what tale it has to tell you.”

What Collectors Are Saying
"I feel privileged to own such a beautiful work of art. It brings grace to my home, as well as feelings of warmth and peace."
"Museum quality, perfect work. Beautiful, sophisticated, and poised."
"The variety of his paintings over the years has made multiple purchases greatly satisfying. Each work is unique and awe-inspiring because his ability is transcendent."
I’ve known Jeff and collected his work for several years now. I always look forward with great anticipation when he shows his new work at local galleries and at art shows around the Boston area. The realism he achieves is astonishing. He brings a remarkable precision and clarity to his Still Lifes, and his compositions are always thoughtful and interesting. I always stop, look, and marvel at the paintings of his that I have hanging on my walls. I am both proud and honored to have him as part of my collection.
"We have several of Jeff's paintings. While they are usually paintings of very everyday things, what he does with them is extraordinary. Reflections and light through glass are masterfully shown, and are particular examples of the 'inherent' light we see in all the things he paints, and that we love seeing in our house."
Ten years ago I took a deep breath and stepped away from a successful career as a computer programmer to paint full time. Since that big move, I’ve made over 1000 paintings, and when possible I paint every single day with a zeal and passion to produce the very finest work for my collectors.
My focus is on the common, everyday objects we have all around us, transforming them into art that celebrates mood, drama, and sometimes simple humor.
I’ve shown pieces in numerous galleries throughout the US, been featured in several international art publications, and placed paintings in about 500 collections worldwide, but my biggest satisfaction remains the look on an art lover’s face when they deeply connect with one of my pieces and truly “get it”.
I spend my days looking around me to find inspiration for new work that will move and delight those who love my paintings. I hope you enjoy them as well – let me know if you did!
Finding my work
This website is the primary venue for seeing my work, and, if you are a collector, acquiring a painting from me. On my collectors’ page, I have a number of resources that describe the process of adding one of my works to your collection. I have made it as simple as possible to purchase art from me online, and if you have any questions about it, I would love to talk to you!
Twice a year, in the spring and the fall, I participate in a major 3-day arts festival just West of Boston. I typically display about 50 paintings and am visited by collectors from around New England and beyond. The next show is scheduled for November 17-19, 2017. As this date approaches I will share more specifics.
