Jeff is an artist in the Sacramento area and is best known for his almost delectable ceramic pastries. He received his BA from UC Davis in 1980 and studied with Robert Arneson and later attended San Francisco Institute of Art and received his MFA in 1983. Jeff is one of a select group of artists who have displayed work at the famed Candy Store Gallery that was once in Folsom, California.
Jeff is considered to be one of the first Funk ceramicists to use pastry tools in clay sculpture. These tools help differentiate textures and ultimately transform his pastries into realistic looking forms. Jeff’s cupcakes are topped with swirls of thick frosting and sprinkles, and are wildly fun and witty.
