Jeff Yeomans Artist Statement
"I grew up in Southern California in the 60's, and all I wanted to do was surf with my friends and do anything involved with art. Since then, painting, teaching and being near the ocean with my family, is how I spend my time. I am constantly working to be a better painter, teacher and father. As a regional painter, I feel a responsibility to document California today, in the same way the early California painters did in their era. I enjoy painting landscapes, especially when they increase our awareness of the value of open space and nature. I also hope that a study of an older neighborhood, of people working, or of Spanish dancers or low-riders at a car show, all bring a respect to, and celebrate the diversity of the region."
