Jeff Traver – Artist Statement
I enjoy painting to capture subjects which invoke special feelings or emotions for me, the artist. All that I paint has meaning and/or emotion attached in some manner.
I began painting as a hobby during the end of the 1960s, and then began painting full time as a business about 5 years ago. I am a self-taught artist selling and displaying my work in summer art fairs throughout Michigan, Ohio and Chicago. I have also sold work and displayed in galleries. I have received awards for art in public places in Saginaw Township, St. Clair and Grand Blanc.
I work with oil and acrylic mediums, mostly on canvas which I construct and frame myself. Residing near Frankenmuth, MI, I am a member of the Flint Artists Market and Grand Blanc Arts Council.
