Jeffrey A. Dering as Fine Artist and Illustrator.

Jeffrey A. Dering

Inspired by art and design since childhood, Jeffrey Dering recalls, “My fourth-grade class went to New York’s Museum of Natural History. It was a formative experience. The wildlife dioramas amazed me. So realistic, I could not tell where dimensional foregrounds merged into painted backgrounds. I had no idea how much this fieldtrip would influence my art and my passion for designing museums and exhibitions.”

By age 16 Jeffrey won a first place at Yale University’s Student Art Show. In college, he studied at Yale University’s Peabody Museum of Natural History with “The Dinosaur Man”, Pulitzer Award-winner, Professor Rudolph F. Zallinger, Artist-in-Residence.

Jeffrey has gained national and international recognition for design, illustration, wildlife art, figurative portraits, impressionistic landscapes and expressionistic paintings.

In describing his painting style and creative process, Jeffrey states…

“As a painter I can be photorealist, sometimes impressionist. As designer I am attracted to line, shape, color and positive-negative spaces. Working mostly in oils, I translate my studies into complex, expressionistic, ‘painted symphonies’, immersing viewers into ‘ecological environments’ with symbols of ‘civilization and technology’.”

“The question is”, Jeffrey poses, “Is my art a galactic landscape or micro-scape? Is it nature, civilization or both? Does my art express past, present or future?”
