Artist Biography:
Jeff Love
Artist Biography:
Born in 1961 into a farming family from Ohio, Jeff spent his early years with a pasture of sheep, acres of corn and a red prairie barn as his playgrounds.  As Jeff watched his grandfather shepherd a flock of sheep or harvest a field of corn, a love for nature grew.  Art was always of interest to Jeff and the two seemed to go together well.  A move to Colorado during his early teen years brought about a new love to build his growing interest in art on - The Rocky Mountains. Excelling in art in school, a high school teacher recognized that Jeff needed to go farther and encouraged him to take college courses while in high school at an art school in Colorado Springs where he explored various mediums and styles.  After high school, Jeff studied art in college in Kansas City, Kansas, furthering his skills which led to an award in watercolor and representation in a gallery show.  After college, Jeff felt a call on his life to a career in ministry and has spent many fulfilling years helping others discover their unique giftedness and purpose in life.  Ministry has taken Jeff to Colorado, Nebraska, West Texas, and Arizona, where he now lives.  During these years, Jeff focused his continuing education in ministerial studies, painting mostly for enjoyment and as an outlet. Finally in 2007, Jeff recognized that an important part of his own life-purpose was creating and painting. Jeff is a firm believer and has taught countless many that it is never too late to become the best that God intends you to be.  Actively pursuing painting with the inspiration and encouragement of instruction from some of his favorite artists, Jeff's medium of choice is oil in which he has dedicated himself to exploring the Arizona landscape both en plein air and in the studio.  Jeff loves to teach, paint and study art, wander the wilderness looking for just the right light, and his paintings are often inspired from some remote mountain location in the high desert of Southern Arizona.
