My Story

I'm Jeff Ferst and I am a Tucson artist. My work is whimsical and vibrant. I create amazingly beautiful sunsets and abstractions - paintings rich in color and inspired by the desert landscape that I call home. I've been painting for over 30 years and my art can be found at www.jeffferst.com.

My work can be called that of a colorist. I am drawn to color and how it brings joy and positive emotions out in people. Some of the comments made in the media and in exhibitions I have been privileged to participate describe my work as "life-affirming", "Flamboyant", "juicy" and "a feast for the senses". 

One of my paintings, Fantasia was singled out by the US Ambassador to Tajikistan in 2012 as the flagship piece of the exhibit which included the works of Rauschenberg, Johns and Indiana.

In 2014 I had an idea to make art more accessible to everyone. Over the years I had seen how art was collected by a small percentage of the population, while many were afraid of buying art or were not familiar with the joys of owning original art. So Artful Living by Jeff Ferst was born.

At Artful Living the raison d'etre for these products is that art should be accessible to everyone. Not just an elite group. By placing my artwork on these quality products anyone who wants to add some color and joy to their lives can do so in a colorful and artful way. 

I began to source manufacturers I could believe in and work with and over the course of almost 2 years I developed relationships with those I felt were the best in the industry. Each manufacturer creates a quality product that is made to order, most by hand with some tools as required. These items are NOT mass produced so they remain very special and unique. When you order one of my artful products you can be assured it is not pulled off a shelf but it is created just for you.

Choosing the right people to work with also means that I had to look outside of the US to find the right partner. While many items in my line are made in the US some come from Canada, Italy or as far away as China. 

In 2015 I moved my studio and created Artful Living Gallery & Studio in downtown Tucson, AZ. It became the home base for my studio where I created my dramatic and colorful paintings. In the summer of 2016 I moved the gallery to the Tucson foothills. It's also now home to a showroom of some of my "artful label" which offers a variety of clothing and home decor items that feature my original artwork. 

In this website you will find a variety of the wonderful products you can enjoy wearing or accessorizing your home and office. I hope you enjoy the experience of shopping on these pages and look forward to hearing from you.
