About the Artist

Dave Jeffery is an established artist living in Whitby, North Yorkshire, he creates paintings in his home studio using a variety of mediums including; watercolours, oils, and acrylics. Dave develops his landscape paintings from preliminary paintings and sketches produced on location. “Personal observation and experience of the subject matter is key to all my work. I am keen to employ other senses such as the senses of touch into my finished work. I enjoy the tactile approach, be it imaginary or real, as an aid to understanding and depicting the 3 dimensional world onto a 2 dimensional surface, I like to explore a variety of painting methods, from illustration top abstract.”

Dave has been teaching basic and more advanced art technique classes for many years, and is currently employed as the leader of Art Holidays on behalf of The National Leisure Interest Holiday Company, HF Holidays.
