Jeff Yeomans is a native Californian, born in Whittier, CA and raised in a family that encouraged his artistic pursuits. A former illustrator and graphic artist, his career includes two decades in television as an award-winning San Diego broadcast designer and art director.
His work documents daily experiences and familiar moments that resonate with a broad audience. Often travel-inspired or autobiographical, they are a visual journal of light, color and form, exploring 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. I hope that a study of an older neighborhood, of people working, or of dancers sharing their culture, all bring respect to, and celebrate the diversity of our region.”
Yeomans has received numerous painting awards including “Best Urban Landscape” at the California Art Club’s 97th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition. His study of a Southern California icon, the kitchen of an In & Out Burger restaurant, was singled out as an example of fine art reflecting contemporary culture. He is also proud of a commission for the Naval Hospital in San Diego, in support of the “Wounded Warriors” project, a state-of-the-art physical rehab center for returning servicemen. International Artist Magazine featured his work in a 10-page article in August 08. Seven of his paintings are included in “Land of Sunlight” a book of landscape paintings of the San Diego region.
He is an Artist Member of the California Art Club, and a Signature Member of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, and lives in Ocean Beach, San Diego.
