Jeff Allen’s work has been described as bold, yet soft. Pastoral with a certain dream like ethereal quality. Impressionistic realism. Jeff draws his inspiration from the Iowa landscape and the group of friends that surround him.

Born in 1958 at Cedar Rapids, IA. Jeff has lived most of his life in Iowa and is currently living in Solon, IA. He is the founder of the Plein Air Painters of Iowa and a past member of the Plein Air Painters of Chicago, Artist member of the Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts of Chicago, Iowa Artists and the Cedar Rapid Drawing Group.

Jeff attended drawing & painting classes at the Des Moines Art Museum and also draws & paints with the Cedar Rapids Drawing Group and The Palette & Chisel in Chicago. Painting is a process of problem solving. Problems of light, shadow, composition, form, rhythm along with what you want to say. If you ask yourself the right questions while standing in front of the canvas you can create a painting that the viewer can connect with. Words alone are not enough…
