Known for his rain-soaked oil paintings, Jeff combines a romantic 1950s feel with his signature rain motif. The anonymous kissing couple in his artworks represents a feeling of togetherness.
His inspirations include the 1995 Clint Eastwood film, The Bridges of Madison County, which features many rainy scenes. For Jeff, rain symbolises washing away history and starting afresh, marking the start of a new journey. His figures are unidentifiable so viewers can relate to them.
To create his pieces, Jeff takes photographs for reference before sketching the characters in a book. He paints the scene without rain and then adds the couple in before painting on the rain with a dry DIY emulsion brush.
