His work also includes complex large scale still-life works and sculpture. Regarding the Hein Academy of Art Jeff said:
“It seems that in today’s largely subjective world of art, many artists lack the academic skills required to open their work up to limitless possibilities. Oftentimes, frustrated young artists attempt to express themselves early on before they have mastered the craft in which they have chosen to work. In so doing, they create boundaries that, ironically, permanently hinder their freedom of expression. My goal is to eliminate these boundaries by building a strong academic foundation through classical training and practice using time tested methods and techniques, which a student can then apply toward his (her) own personal expression.”
