Like many children, Jeffrey Jakub spent all of his free time as a child drawing and creating with his vivid imagination. As an adult, Jeff still uses that vivid imagination to create works of art.
Jeff graduated from the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art and over the years he has worked as an art director, fashion illustrator and advertisement artist for various newspapers, catalogs. magazines and ad agencies.
After moving to North Carolina in 1986, Jeff began to capture simple and historical scenes of regional interest as a way to preserve them. Jeff said, “I see the beauty of things and have a desire to share it with others”.
Jeff always keeps his camera handy to record scenes to preserve in his paintings later. He sells his art and teaches painting to others, encouraging them to use their talents creatively. He has won more than 160 awards for his work including 8 Best in Show and 20 Viewers Choice Awards.
Offering high-quality limited-edition prints is one way Jeff shares what he feels and sees with his audience while preserving memories for future generations to enjoy.
