A Canadian artist, Jeff Dillion is best known for his contour lines that create extremely detailed work. Jeff ’s work is also known to depict a range of scenes from natural landscapes and wild animals to urban cityscapes and their architectural details.
From an early age Jeff developed a deep love of nature and animals. He began sketching the fields and farmlands around his home. Later, this developed into a fascination for weather patterns and the multi-faceted impressions that weather change has on the land. Themes of storms, cloud patterns, water movement, craggy coasts and hidden groves come alive in Jeff ’s paintings.
What began as youthful curiosity quickly became a passion. Drawn by his love of the natural world Jeff studied horticulture and landscape design in order to deepen his knowledge of the world around him. Inspired by the natural world Jeff ’s art has since expanded to include birds, animals, and figurative drawing. As Jeff ’s skill as a painter grew so did the detail and vibrancy of his work.
Jeff describes his work as heavily influenced by European and Canadian landscape artists in their use of bold colour and style. He takes inspiration from both and applies his own style, by intensifying colour with illustrative flair.
