Portland, Oregon painter Jeff White holds a BFA from the Art Center College of Design of Pasadena, California, and is known for his colorful, dramatic landscapes and skyscapes. He specializes in oil paints and pastel paintings. His greatest inspiration comes from his experiences with nature, and he works mostly in the Columbia Gorge and in the Northwest coastal regions.
Jeff captures the beauty and color of great landscapes, but moreover, strives to evoke the power of the external and internal forces that one often experiences in nature. “My work represents a spiritual journey and the balance found in the harmonies I see between the environment and man as a voyeur passing through time,” he explains, “I use thin glazes and layers of transparent pigments to emulate the atmospheric conditions that exist in the natural world.”
