Jeff Felker was born in 1980 and raised in a world of latchkeys, comic books, and urban exploration. He received an MA in English Literature from California State University in 2009.
A recurring theme in his work is the isolated human figure. This is an interpretation of emotional isolation, explains Felker, who owes some of his inspiration to literature. He uses oil to juxtapose bright and muted colors, and paints on canvas and board.
He currently teaches English at American River College.
