Jeff Leedy began his art career out of college, working for ad agencies as an art director for years before becoming an illustrator. His path led him to working in freelance illustration for several years before starting to do shows, giving him the ability to be a full-time artist. During his work as an illustrator, Jeff took a hiatus to Europe, taking along acrylics and oil pastels, enjoying the flexibility the pastel gave him. This combination of mediums allowed him to draw and paint, work in layers and add acrylic washes to tone the substrate if needed. It was the perfect fit for his style, and he has stuck with it. Jeff chose oil pastels because they are the right match for his art, the same way he chose Aquabord years ago.
