Hello and welcome!
I am Jeff Dufour and I am a digital artist and graphic designer, based in Norman, Oklahoma, USA.
I love creating digital artwork and graphic designs inspired by nature and the sacred geometry of life. I am drawn to symmetry and the beautiful, amazing complexity that is all around us. This influence is often apparent in my artwork and designs, sometimes obvious, sometimes more subtle. This is what makes me happiest and what I love sharing with friends and the community, both local and online around the world.
I started creating tradition artwork in 1979 using pen & ink, pencil, and color pencil after discovering an artist by the name of Roger Dean who turned out to be a huge influence. I jumped head first into the digital art realm in 1991 shortly after the desktop publishing revolution had begun. Leveraging the power of the Macintosh computer and tools like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, PageMaker and others, I discovered a whole new world of creative options and never looked back. I have over 20 years professional experience managing the creative department for a large company in Southern California. I left that position and relocated to Oklahoma in August of 2014 to live closer to my three beautiful daughters. I currently freelance my creative services and market my artwork and designs locally and online.
I attended college in Southern California and attained my skills in Graphic Design/Communications, Desktop Publishing and Digital Illustration before joining the workforce full-time. Working in the advertising and design industry for over two decades afforded me much “on the job” experience and knowledge in a real world environment. I love to learn and I continue to leverage training services such as Lynda.com and other online educational resources.
