Jeff Morrow Biography
Jeff Morrow has been influenced by some of the 19th century artists and the best of today's masters. Primarily focusing on portraiture, sporting art and urban scenes, Morrow gained an aesthetic education during his 28-year career as a commercial photographer and video producer. He describes his style as painterly realism. Though rooted in the classic tradition, his style is contemporary in spirit.
The goal of a portrait commission is to create a good likeness, a painting that is pleasing on its own merit. Morrow believes that a successful portrait painting is one that also captures the subject's character. He strives to create a painting that will stand the test of time and be treasured by future generations.
The goal of Morrow's landscapes and sporting art is not only to create a beautiful painting with a strong composition, but to convey a sense of the moment. Jeff Morrow resides in the Cincinnati area and is a member of The Portrait Society of America, Oil Painters of America, The American Academy of Equine Art and also is a Signature Member of the Cincinnati Art Club. He is represented by the Eisele Gallery of Fine Art in Cincinnati, Ohio and the Brandt-Roberts Gallery in Columbus, Ohio.
