About Jeff:

Jeff Loxterkamp earned an MFA at the University of Iowa in 1989. He was named "Ones to Watch" in the April 2009 edition of Maine Home & Design.

Loxterkamp’s cityscapes feature old-fashioned villages and downtowns that speck the Maine Coast line from Kittery to Mt. Desert and along the Blue Hill Peninsula. “His colors pop off the canvas, with deep, brooding skies and wildly fluid brushstrokes. There’s a sense of motion....a feeling of change.”

“I like playing with paint,” Loxterkamp says. “I try to make a painting seem as sensuous as possible, so you almost want to touch it but shouldn’t.”
