An excerpt from Jeff's Artist Statement:
I respond to the beauty that exists in the imperfections of nature; A torn leaf? a crack in a cement wall? a twisted branch?a shaft of lightning cutting through the night sky, all have the potential to be dimensions of beauty that feed the artistic soul and creative process.
