Jeff Christian is a wildlife artist, illustrator, and designer with over 20 years of experience as a professional artist. Jeff grew up in North Carolina enjoying the outdoors, especially fishing, and he draws on his experiences to inspire his craft. Often after hours of entranced angling, he awakens to find himself in a perfect scene in a perfect time. That spot in time is the subject of many of his paintings.
Having experimented for years with different media and surfaces, Jeff now mostly works in oils and watercolors, depending on the project. Self-prepared boards give the desired texture for each piece. For framing, he likes to either find a suitable antique or to craft one from walnut, oak, or some other authentically handsome hardwood.
Jeff's art has appeared in magazines, catalogs, & apparel, for clients such as “Wildlife in North Carolina”, Penn Reels, & Fathom Offshore. He has contributed many prints and originals to promote conservation organizations and charities such as the Coastal Conservation Association, Ducks Unlimited, & Heroes on the Water. Jeff is an active member of the North Carolina Wildlife Artist Society and the Chatham Artists Guild, exhibiting art all over North Carolina.
Jeff creates designs for clients all over the US. Jeff's work can be found in gift shops and state parks along the East Coast, all over North Carolina, and in the marinas and tackle shops of the Louisiana Coast. Along with art, design, and illustration, Jeff also enjoys woodworking, flytying, and boatbuilding.
Originals, limited edition prints, gifts, hand-crafted gear, and information can be found on his websites - and www.kingfisherdesigns.net. Contact Jeff at .
