Colorful & Joyful Paintings and Mosaics
Designer of Clothing & Home Decor Accessories
I’m Jeff Ferst, a Tucson artist – painter of colorful and joyful oil paintings – deconstructed landscapes and abstractions. Yes, I’m a colorist as you’ll see and my muse is the southwestern desert landscape I call home.
My paintings, well they have been called life affirming, juicy and flamboyant. They’re vibrant abstract landscape paintings and abstractions. Inspiration for my work naturally comes from the amazing sunsets and local desert flora and fauna here in Arizona. I have been fortunate to have my art work featured in many group and solo shows over the years – both here in the US, and in Canada …where I lived for many years (eh), and overseas in Europe, Asia and Africa. These days you can find me in my Tucson studio where I create my original and colorful paintings in oil and mixed media. I also like to mix it up and create colorful ceramic platters, ethereal monoprints, and mosaics.
In 2015 I decided to open my own gallery here in Tucson which I named Artful Living Gallery. The premise was to offer my original art alongside my ceramics and licensed merchandise (items I developed relationship with various manufacturers of clothing and home decor).Overall the experience was a blast as it got me in front of my customers…and so I learned an awful lot about what they liked about my work. After 2 years I realized that it took me away from where I needed to concentrate my time – the studio. So now I am back creating new and exciting work which I hope you enjoy. And you can still see and buy many of my artful products on Wayfair, Houzz, Amazon and from other distributors.
