JEFF WEAVER was born in 1953. Drawing and painting have been life-long pursuits for Jeff. A Massachusetts native, he began sketching and painting the waterfronts of Boston and Gloucester at the young age of fifteen. Jeff moved to Gloucester in 1972, his first year as a student at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. For over 30 years, the city streets, weathered houses, packing plans, fishing boats and those who work them have all served as subject matter for his art.
Jeff paints in a representational style using strong light, dark values and animated brushwork to create dynamic compositions. His award winning work has been shown at many galleries, including the Rockport Art Association, Northshore Arts Association and the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport.
