ARTIST STATEMENT
I make things. 
I show people how to make things. 
I have an insatiable desire to create, to explore, to understand. 
I work with my hands. 
I work with my head.
 
My works intention is to provide just enough information, allowing for a narrative without delving into total non-representationalism. Leaving room for interpretation as well as a little mystery, I hope, adds to the viewing experience. My work in graphic design and general fascination with pop culture are heavy influences on my work.
 
BIO
Jeffie Brewer grew up in a small, rural town in East Texas. The son of eccentric junk yard owners, he learned to spot beauty in the mundane, developed an array of industrial skills and discovered he had a knack for drawing. Those early revelations have influenced his artistic trajectory ever since.
 
Jeff earned an MFA in sculpture and metals and an MA in sculpture and painting from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. He also holds a BFA in drawing, printmaking and jewelry making from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. He has taught a wide range of undergraduate and graduate level art classes, from sculpture to typography to expressive drawing, at Stephen F. Austin State University, Angelina College and University of Texas at Tyler.
 
Since his first exhibition in 1998, his work has appeared in both solo and group shows across America and in Mexico and Japan.
