Local artist Jeff Dodd paints hyperrealist oil paintings. He paints both portraits, landscapes, and westerns. His landscapes are idealized and his portraits are unique, with children portraying clown faces.
Jeff received his bachelor’s degree in fine art from Southwestern Oklahoma State University, pursued graduate studies at Wichita State and studied under Tony Ryder in New York City at the Art Students League. He returned to Oklahoma in the 1990s, after being commissioned to paint two murals for the Oklahoma State Capitol. These murals commemorate the oil and gas and agriculture industries of Oklahoma and hang above the House of Representative and Senate Chambers. Painting these murals brought the native Oklahoman back to his home state, where he maintains a studio in Arnett, OK.
