Jeff Jachimiec was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. After graduation from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Jeff began printing magazines, catalogs and retail inserts using the gravure printing process. His own print consultant company, Printing Solutions, was launched in 1998. Today Jeff enjoys working with the medium of encaustic. When his artist wife Sue was battling breast cancer, and thought she would have to cancel a scheduled show, he jumped in and picked up her brush, so to speak. He taught himself how to paint using her medium. Jeff paints in a charming naive style. It captures his heart, innocence and hope. Jeff works in the Midwest and East Coast for his business and draws inspiration for his paintings of barns, cottages and wildlife on his travels. He and Sue enjoy painting together.
