JEFF PIPERHello and thanks for visiting my site. For the sake that you may care about my credentials as an artist, I’ve provided a little information about my background below*. Feel free to contact me with any questions. *If you don’t care please skip ahead to the art>> 😛 BIO I was born on December 18th, 1976 in Warren, Ohio. I received my Bachelor of fine arts from Kent State University with a minor in education in 2002. I began teaching art classes at the high school level in 2003 in the town I grew up. In 2010 I graduated from the Youngstown State University with a Masters of Arts. My education has been concentrated in painting; however I enjoy the field of ceramics and often use a mixed media approach to all my work. I have been involved with many local shows and galleries, including The Soap Gallery of Youngstown, Ohio, Gallery 29 of Sharon, Pennsylvania, and The Mac Worthington Gallery of Columbus, Ohio. I work both as a gallery artist and commissioned artist.
“Painting is a science, and should be pursued as an enquiry into the laws of nature. Why, then, should not landscape painting be considered as a branch of natural philosophy, of which pictures are but the experiments?”
