About the instructor
Jeff Yeomans experience as an illustrator and graphic designer eventually led to a career working in television as an award-winning San Diego broadcast designer and art director. Most of his work explores the fragile beauty of California and the connected urban landscape, that ultimately impacts it.
“As a regional painter, I feel a responsibility to document California as it is today. Someone told me, “paint what you know”, so having grown up in Southern California, I paint to document where and how we live.”
Yeomans has received numerous awards including “Best Urban Landscape” at the California Art Club’s 97th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition. His study of the interior of an In & Out Burger restaurant, was singled out as an example of fine art reflecting contemporary culture. He has had exhibitions at the San Diego Art Institute, and the Oceanside Museum of Art. Seven of his paintings are included in “Land of Sunlight” a book of landscape paintings of the San Diego region. His work is also featured in “Painting California: Seascapes and Beach Towns” published by Rizzoli and the California Art Club.
An Artist member of the California Art Club and a Signature member of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, he lives in Ocean Beach, San Diego.
