Jeffrey Nentrup originally hails from the Los Angeles suburb of Thousand Oaks, CA. In 1999 he attended the Art Center College Of Design in Pasadena, receiving a BFA with Distinction in Illustration in 2002. As a painter, the artist works primarily in oils while his acclaimed commercial work, largely executed as digital paintings, have earned him ‘Master’ status in popular forums such as Corel Painter Magazine and CGHub. In addition to having taught figure painting classes for Red Engine Studios, extensive outdoor landscape painting and live portraiture have provided the artist with a wide range of subject and authenticity in his work. Jeffrey’s most recent paintings are a culmination of years spent refining his craft in the figurative realist tradition.
