Artist / Personal Statement
Jeffery Carl is a native of suburban Chicago. He earned a BFA in Illustration, an MA in Studio Art, and an MFA in Drawing and Painting from Northern Illinois University. His work has been shown both regionally and nationally. For over 12 years he has taught drawing, painting, illustration, art history, and fine art seminars at Judson University.

Through drawing and painting Jeffery imagines the natural movements of geology, meteorology and astrophysics as metaphors for supernatural processes. As the universe unfolds in time he believes it leaves remnants that become a microcosm of the whole.
