Ben was born in 1986 and grew up in Barnet, north London. He always had a keen interest in art ever since his grandfather introduced him to the work of John Varley, the renowned 18th Century watercolour artist, as the Varleys are related to the Jeffery family.
Ben always wanted to paint with oils and come up with colourful detailed paintings, however this wasn’t always well received by his tutors, but his classmates were always quite impressed with what Ben came up with. It was then that Jeffery picked up methods and techniques to get the mark making he wanted with oil paints. It’s a case of trial and error a lot of the time, trying new ways of controlling the paint, from there his style has evolved.
Bens work is fairly diverse, ranging from portraits to landscapes, in both pencil and oils. He loves working with vivid, bright colours to create a unique and modern style. He is huge Sci-fi movie fan and he loves special effects.
