JEFF YEOMANS is a native Californian, born in Whittier, CA and raised in a family that encouraged his artistic pursuits. A former illustrator and graphic artist, his career includes two decades in television as an award-winning San Diego broadcast designer and art director.
His current artwork documents daily experiences and familiar moments that resonate with a broad audience. Often travel-inspired or autobiographical, Jeff’s paintings are a visual journal of light, color and form, exploring the fragile beauty of California and the connected urban landscape, that ultimately impacts it.
"As a regional painter, I feel a responsibility to document California as it is today. I hope that a study of an older neighborhood, of people working, or of dancers sharing their culture, all bring respect to, and celebrate the diversity of our region."
Jeff has received numerous awards including “Best Urban Landscape” at the California Art Club’s 97th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition. His study of a Southern California icon, the kitchen of an In & Out Burger restaurant, was singled out as an example of fine art reflecting contemporary culture. He has had exhibitions at the San Diego Art Institute, and the Oceanside Museum of Art. Seven of his paintings are included in “Land of Sunlight” a book of landscape paintings of the San Diego region. A member of the California Art Club and a Signature member of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, he is represented by Studio 7 Gallery in Laguna Beach, John Baker Frames in San Diego, and Marcia Burtt Gallery, Santa Barbara. www.jeffyeomans.com
