Jeffrey has always been interested in looking at the quirky side of life - whether it’s people, animals, or people and animals sharing the world.

     He seeks to express this ironic relationship in his paintings in a delicious, humorous and playful manner.


His current paintings are based on familiar, mostly Australian, sayings or utterances, and is his eccentric “take” on them.



Jeffrey spent 20 years creating large batik paintings and now paints smaller work in the more permanent medium of water-colour.

     He uses bright colours and grading as before, and likes his work to generate a laugh or a smile from the viewers.
