Jeff Shortt

After almost forty years as a graphic designer and educator I am enjoying retirement, exploring the delights of personal expression. Inspiration comes from infinite sources, but I am especially drawn to the natural world, and to cultural nuance. Our customs, habits, and events, from architectural feats to a simple tea ceremony, help to define us.


Clay offers a palette of almost limitless possibilities, and “playing in the mud” allows us to connect with the Earth at a personal level.
