Jeff Ferst Artist – Paintings & Ceramics… & Designer of Clothing, Home Decor & Gifts
I’m Jeff Ferst. I’m a Tucson artist, a painter mostly of colourful and joyful oil paintings – landscapes and abstractions. Yes, I’m a colourist as you’ll see ….and I’m also the designer of Artful Living, a line of licensed clothing, home decor & gifts that feature my artwork.
My paintings, well they have been called life affirming, juicy and flamboyant. They’re vibrant landscape paintings and abstractions. Inspiration for my work naturally comes from the amazing sunsets and local desert landscape. That’s why my art work has been 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 colourful paintings in oil and mixed media. I also like to mix it up and create colourful ceramic platters, ethereal monoprints, and mosaics.
In 2015 I decided to take my art, studio, licensed products and put it under one roof. I called it Artful Living Gallery. In the summer of 2016 I decided the climate downtown was not right for my concept so I moved the art gallery to the foothills of Tucson at Plaza Colonial. The move was sup[posed to place me as part of the foothills art gallery walk at the SW corner of the intersection of Campbell & Skyline. As things would have it the art walk fell apart and so I’m back in the studio creating for my customers, designers and other galleries.
My licensed home decor & clothing is still available here at the studio and online. People have asked why the merchandise? The raison d’etre for creating these artful products is to make art accessible to everyone and for it to be enjoyed as part of every day life. Why not? That’s why I have looked to find manufacturers who create a variety of items so you can wear fashionable clothing or accessorize your home or office with my vibrant and artful images. Why not enjoy your life by making it a bit more colourful!
I also recently launched my new online shopping experience – Artful Living by Jeff Ferst www.artfullivingbyjeffferst.com. Please check out the website for an amazing line of clothing, home decor and footwear by clicking the link in the text or on the menu bar at the left..
