Jeff Rowland Artist


Jeff Rowland was born 29 January 1964 – he recalled being inspired to create art from a young age, as he watched his grandmother working with oil paints, a pastime hobby.

At school, he was only interested in Art and Rugby. When he left school he had many & varied jobs, including working at a bakery. He knew he only ever wanted to draw & sketch. He even had a stall by his local train station selling prints of his work.

He studied art at Newcastle Tyneside college and made his first attempt at becoming a self-employed professional artist in 1984. After struggling to find success, he was determined to hone his focus and skills whilst studied advertising and illustration at the Newcastle School of Design.

Following this, Rowland was able to create a collection that earned him great local success, exhibiting in Northumberland and eventually later in London. Increasing sales enabled him to continue working towards his desired career as a full-time artist.

Jeff was known for the commitment he showed to his work, and to creating art that was truly authentic. He immersed himself in the scenes he created – for example, before painting a series of scenes featuring fishermen and trawlers, he went out on a North Sea trawler to experience the work first hand.

In the latter years of his life, Jeff Rowland, who was based in the North East of England, was able to find natural inspiration for his signature “Rain Soaked” artwork. Jeff was best known for artworks that speak to the romantic in all of us – the drama of the rain used to highlight the cinematic snippets of romance and passion shown beneath the storm clouds. His unique work & style are now world renown.

He died on 16 November 2018 at the age of 55, following a long battle with leukemia.
