Homeschooled from the age of seven until eighteen, Nate Jeffery then began college, taking a winding path to graduation from Edinboro University as a painter with a BFA in studio art—spending two decades in manufacturing before going to graduate school, he received an MFA in painting from Miami University in 2021. Philosophy and perception play a role in Nate’s work as a realist figurative painter, exploring being, place, and temporality. His paintings have been shown in Cincinnati’s Contemporary Art Center, and Manifest Gallery, the Erie Art Museum’s 2022 Spring Show, and in the upcoming Paul and Norma Tikkanen Painting Prize show. Nate lives in Fairview with his family and their cats, who all often appear in his paintings and drawings.
