All art, portraits, paintings and drawings copyright © 1995 - 2017 Jeff Haines
I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. I have always had a particular love of faces, portraiture and the human figure and invariably default to people when drawing, painting, or sketching. The effort to capture a likeness and personality, accurately describe form, and still retain a stroke that's alive and interesting is something I always try to express in the work that I produce. I am largely self taught and have a passion for discovering the answers to the complexities found in the works of the masters. I work in a wide variety of mediums including charcoal, chalk, graphite, ink, and oils.
I majored in Fine Art in college and studied Anatomy and Illustration extensively. I have since worked as an artist and graphic designer all over central California. I currently live and work in Modesto, California with my son Lucas.
