THE ARTEFAKTS STORY
It took me great courage to strike it out on my own, after working in the creative industry and education field for more than 30 years. Many said I was crazy to leave my stable job. But then, a little voice inside me was telling me otherwise...
Hello and Welcome!
I’m Jeffrey, founder of ARTEFAKTS Art • Craft • Design. I am deeply passionate about art education.
I’ve been a design professional in the creative industry for 18 years holding positions from senior designer to art director in design agencies, major publishers, as well as designing museum exhibitions, before moving into an academic career teaching art and graphic design in a tertiary institution for 15 years.
ARTEFAKTS was founded so I could continue to share my passion and rich experience with you. I dedicate ARTEFAKTS to anyone with an interest in drawing and printmaking. If you’ve always had a secret yearning to create and express yourself artistically, come join us for art jamming, or one of our short, weekend fun ‘crafty’ workshops and discover the artist in you! Or if you have a bit more time on your hands, why not sign up for one of our art courses for a better foundation in sketching and drawing. Classes are kept small for a warm, friendly atmosphere for effective learning.
Our open, light-filled studio will inspire your imagination. Feel cozy and right at home while working on your drawing or printmaking projects. Take your time. Relax and chill. Mingle and make friends with other like-minded art makers like you.
Thanks for visiting ARTEFAKTS. Really look forward to welcoming you to our studio soon! See ya!
