“In Jeffrey's completed artworks, he gives a new experience to an existing material. With the combination of color and perspective, his work is loved by a wide audience. Jeffrey is very involved in his assignments and, as a result, captures the essence of his artistic work well. ” - Hannah Groenwold, Vereniging van Waterbouwers
About the Rotterdam city sketcher
Rotterdam city sketcher
Jeffrey has been drawing almost all his life. He has studied graphic and multimedia design and worked as a game- and web designer. But his love and urge for drawing has always remained. This is why he went to the Art Academy in Antwerp and now works as an independent visual artist.
He’s also one of the organisers of the Urban Sketchers Rotterdam. Every month they organise sketch events at various locations in Rotterdam. To tell the stories of their city. He also hosts figure drawing sessions in his living room. He likes to connect people through creative events.
As a portrait artist he makes caricatures at events. As a city guide he gives drawing tours in Rotterdam and Schiedam. His work is part of individual and corporate collections at home and abroad. He has exhibited in the Stayokay, Markthal, Kunsthal and Tent Rotterdam. His cityscapes are on sale at the Stayokay, Enfant Terrible and the Maritime Museum Rotterdam.
“I’m a city sketcher. I portray cityscapes and city people. My work is organic and full of life, feeling and humour. I like to give buildings and machines animal-like or human characteristics. I love colour, contrast and a whimsical line. I usually work on location and using observation. Responding to my environment with watercolours, pencil and pen. Finally, my love for comics and urban sketching has also influenced my style. In the future I want to share more stories about my city, either big or small.“.
