The Art Of Jeff Kolker
A short time ago I came across an artist that works as a Digital Painter and immediately I was impressed by the fact that at first I had no idea whatsoever that his art was not done with oil paints.
In his own words Jeff says "Self taught, I use the computer to paint. I've always been interested in computers since I first worked on one way back in high school. And I've always had an appreciation for art, as my mother is an accomplished painter. Merging the two, what you see are the results. Digital work that looks (hopefully!) like a traditional painting. "
He has succeeded in his efforts, and his works certainly look like traditionals. As a multi media artists myself, I also love digital art and have great respect for it, but I never ask artists their secrets.
I believe that what artists like Jeff bring to the table by way of their sheer creativity, are fresh, unique, sensitive and certainly talented works of art.
Please be sure to take a peek at his portfolio and enjoy the talent within, and if you wish to see more of this talented artist's work, you can visit his webiste at
