About Jeff Chapman-Crane

Jeff Chapman-Crane is a full-time professional artist from the southern Appalachian Mountains, where he has lived and practiced his art since the early 1970s. His art focuses on the culture of Appalachia, with an emphasis on portraits of mountain people.

His realistic work follows well-established traditions in American art, in the vein of Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, and Andrew Wyeth for their portrayals of ordinary life. Social commentary photographers Dorothy Lange, Ken Murray of Tennessee, and "Picture Man" Mullins of Jenkins, Kentucky have also influenced the content of Jeff's work.

Chapman-Crane's work has been featured in American Artist magazine, and he is a four-time finalist in the Artists Magazine's annual portrait competition. He was also the illustrator for the children's book, "Ragsale," which won Best in Show at the 1995 New England Bookfair.
