Pencil Drawing Of Nature Biography
Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1951 and residing there until attending college at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 1969, I spent the majority of my childhood exploring what was then rural West Allis. Armed with a net, field guides and collection containers I set out to explore and learn about nature seeking beetles, butterflies, snakes and birds. Art and science surrounded my early years as a teen I raised and rehabilitated injured wildlife in addition to working with and contributing to existing insect and mounted animal collections for my schools biology department. Mastering the art of taxidermy at an early age I spent countless hours exploring the Milwaukee Public Museum giving to me a reverence for our natural world and helped define the path of my education and ensuring my life long interest in our flora and fauna.
Attending college I focused my attention on fine arts, biology and museum methods. Working with the Natural History Museum and College of Natural Resources as a taxidermist and preparing dioramas. Following graduation and a chance meeting with the late Owen Gromme my professional endevors shifted towards wildlife art. Contributing to countless private collections throughout the United States as well as the permanent collections at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Meseum, Wausau and the Miller Art Center, Sturgeon Bay. My outlook on the natural world has been built on the aesthetic qualities through my images I attempt to inspire excitement and admiration for organisms that are so often overlooked.
In my passion for realism my colored pencil drawings are created lifesize and crafted through a technique I developed. Works are created by sorting through coutless photographs, plant material and actual specimens for all measurements and color matching and most works are created with full color background and ca take from as little as one month to a year to complete. For the past number of years my vacations have been spent in the deserts of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas with breathtaking vistas and rich in species diversity. Encountering gila monsters, rattlesnakes, birds and the spectacular emergence of silk moths during the summer monsoon season I am incorporating many of these species in my newest works of art.
Jeffrey Gordon Whiting was born in 1972 in Ottawa (Canada's capital) and demonstrated his interest in nature and art at a very young age. He graduated with an Honours degree in Biology and Geology from Carleton University, also in Canada's capital. Jeff's life has many facets. He is a world-class wildlife sculptor, a naturalist, an instructor, an author and illustrator of several published books, a paleobiologist.

In 1997, Jeff combined his passions for nature and art with his business acumen and his technology knowledge and resources to found the Artists for Conservation Foundation (Formerly the Worldwide Nature Artists Group). The AFC has since become a prestigious association of artists and the world's leading artist collective supporting the environment.

Jeff is also co-founder and partner in a leading Internet consulting firm, ISCAPE Internet Consulting, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. As ISCAPE's Director of Development & Systems, he is responsible for researching the latest Internet technologies and orchestrating their implementation with his Development and eMarketing teams.

Jeff is a versatile artist, and continues to experiment with new techniques, media and subjects. His work has been influenced by oriental artwork and disciplines, particularly Ikebana and Bonsai. Known best for his striking mixed-media sculptures, Jeff works predominantly in wood, metal and stone. In two-dimensional work, Jeff's preferred media are gouache and graphite.

Jeff's subjects range from anatomical restorations of prehistoric life, such as dinosaurs, to modern birds, insects and plants. Jeff produces a small number of creations, each requiring in excess of 1,000 hours of work.
