“I have been in the creative industries for almost 40 years as a designer, art director, and most recently as an art educator teaching graphic design and heading the art foundation department in a tertiary institution for 15 years. Teaching and sharing my passion in art and design has been one of the most purposeful and fulfilling, because I believe there’s a little artist in all of us… waiting to be discovered. Many lament that they “have no talent” in art. But art need not be frightening or difficult. As someone once wrote, “All it takes is imagination. You dream. You plan. You reach.”
Art calms your mind, and nourishes your soul. Come discover your artistic gift today.
Come discover the artist in you.

About the Artwork
The art of Turkish marbling or “Ebru” – with its mesmerizing and intricate patterns – has always fascinated Jeffrey. Joyful Transition celebrates this centuries-old art form, bringing together several traditional marbling patterns within a single abstract composition. Sometimes referred to as “the dance of colours”, Ebru requires discipline, practice and calm patience. This piece is especially symbolic as it marks the author’s third anniversary, transitioning from a graphic designer/art educator to a full time artist.
