Artist's Bio: "Jeffie Brewer grew up in a small, rural town in East Texas.

Jeffie earned an MFA in sculpture and metals and an MA in sculpture and painting. He also holds a BFA in drawing, printmaking and jewelry making. He taught a wide range of undergraduate and graduate level art classes from 1998-2019, from sculpture to typography to expressive drawing.

 

Since his first exhibition in 1998, his work has appeared in both solo and group shows across North America and in Mexico and Japan.

 

In addition to his academic career, Jeff has utilized his artistic talents as an illustrator and designer for an advertising firm (Point A Media, 1999-present) and as the founder and president of a design and fabrication company (Orange Cat, Inc., 2002-present). He also designed, fabricated and built his own home in 2006.

 

Jeffie is married to the love of his life, Angie, whom he credits with saving him from impending doom. His interests include teaching, golf, dogs, plants, the letter z, singularity, a ten foot putt, fresh figs, harmony, understanding, tulips, the tango, long runs, cut grass, the color teal, clouds, rust stains on concrete, clouds, small violent birds, the realization of exactly how fast time goes by, the number 7, politricks, cows, short walks, good stories, using the word "sans" and lying in the sun."
