in Whittier, CA in 1954, Jeff Yeomans was raised in a family that encouraged
his creative pursuits. Following fine art studies at Rio Hondo Community
College, he moved to San Diego to be closer to good surf, and began
a successful career as an illustrator/designer for television and print.
Encouraged by his wife to transition to painting as a career, he was
invited to exhibit work in Italy at the Florence Biennial of Contemporary
Art (2005) and was one of four San Diego artists featured in the William
D. Cannon Art Gallery's 2nd Invitational Exhibition. He has gone on
to show at the San Diego Art Institute and Art Expressions Gallery.
He received a commission to produce a large painting for the Naval Hospital
in Balboa Park, San Diego in 2007. A member of the Oil Painters of America,
National Portrait Society, San Diego Art Institute and Laguna Plein
Air Painters Association, Yeomans was recognized by Southwest Art Magazine
(Oct '07) as an "Artist to Watch." Yeomans lives in Ocean
Beach, San Diego, with his wife, two children and their dog "Rusty."
He is represented by Art Expressions Gallery in San Diego and Studio
7 Gallery in Laguna Beach, CA.
