Jeff Horn

“I prefer to paint directly from nature and I love being outdoors where I can see, hear, smell and feel the scene around me. For me, the painting is a translation of nature and my experience of it. If I am successful, I take the viewer with me to feel the moment.

I believe good painting is not a slavish copy of visual details, but an emotional response to a moment in nature.”
