Artist, Scott Jeffries




“S O U L       D O O D L I N G”



If you wonder how he creates his spectacular paintings, Scott Jeffries, who’s been doodling since childhood and still has his grandmother’s paintbox and brushes, will tell you “Don’t be afraid to paint outside the lines.”





Painting by Scott Jeffries





That describes not just his art but his life. Jeffries has reinvented himself as a professional artist after a series of yet unbroken high school swimming records, being an All Star Division 1 athlete, having a successful legal career as a Public Defender and more.





Painting by Scott Jeffries




Jeffries’ art begins with a total absence of sketching or planning, as it blossoms spontaneously into a beautiful melody of faces and shapes that create symphonies of color sometimes spilling over and off the canvas. And he will tell you his lack of a formal art education has allowed him freedom of artistic creativity  unencumbered by established norms. To browse his paintings and learn more about Scott Jeffries please visit, on Instagram @scottart.
