Jeff Kealley

Have travelled throughout Australia from the central arid region to the magnificent Kimberley’s.

Inspired by the colour of the desert after spending time in Alice Springs, I resumed painting in 2004 after a break of 30 years.

I prefer to work in oils and graphite from sketches and photos capturing the landscapes and characters I encounter.
