Biography


  
Jeff Otis is an oil painter, living in Albuquerque, who is known primarily for his landscapes. 
Half his pre-adult life was spent in Europe where his interest in art was facilitated by the proximity of some of the world’s greatest art museums.  
Landscape, especially the dramatic vistas of the desert Southwest, are his central focus. His style is representational and often accompanied by contrasts of light and shade as well as dynamic color harmonies.   He attributes much of his development as a painter to great artists of the past such as Monet, Sargent, Millet, and Sorolla. Contemporary artists having equally important influence include Wilson Hurley, Michael Lynch, Russell Chatham, Clyde Aspevig, Richard Schmid, Laura Robb, Dan Gerhartz, Wayne Wolfe, Ralph Oberg, David Leffel, and Sherrie Mcgraw.  
His work can be seen at Meyer Gallery in Santa Fe, Concetta D. Fine Arts in Albuquerque, and Waterhouse Gallery in Santa Barbara.  
He is a signature member of Oil Painters of America. In 2009 he received the Fine Art Connoisseur Award for Excellence at the OPA national exhibit in Santa Fe.  The New Mexico State Permanent Collection has one of his paintings as does the New Mexico Museum of Art and History. In 1996 he won the Excellence Award at the Oil Painters of America Western Regional show. His paintings are found in individual and corporate collections throughout the United States as well as Japan and Europe.
