A graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art with a degree in graphic design and fine art, Jef Sturm has spent most of his life studying design, drawing, painting and teaching. Often working from his own photographic compositions, Jef’s goal is to capture the quality of light and make it the subject of his paintings.
Jef has been invited to exhibit and demonstrate at the Brookgreen Gardens Art Festival events, and he has participated in the Brookgreen Gardens Curator’s Auction. Earlier this year, Jef was accepted to exhibit in the Akron Art Institute Show and a solo show in Florence, SC. In addition to exhibiting in several venues across multiple markets, Jef teaches painting and drawing at Island Art Gallery in Pawleys Island.
