Artist Jeff Fleming paints exuberant portraits of dogs and flowers, reflections of his positive energy. Growing up in Southern California, Jeff was first introduced to fingerpainting in kindergarten. He painted through high school and college and won several art awards, including Best of Show in a city-wide student competition. After graduating with a degree in journalism and advertising, he worked as an art director. For the next 40 years, he created print, radio, and television ads for a number of top agencies. "After retiring in 2019, the clouds of stress and pressure cleared and allowed me to set my creative energy free," says Jeff. He began developing new techniques focused on the excitement and energy of painting. Today, he uses a variety of methods and tools, including fingerpainting, traditional paint brushes, bamboo shish kebab sticks, kite string, spray paint, and splattering. While working, Jeff always listens to music, including Broadway musicals, dance music, and rhythmic Hawaiian tunes.
