About Jeff

SlowgramSelfieByJeffreyTing

Hello and welcome! I am a designer-maker based in the United Kingdom.

All my creations are hand-made, with a little help from those inspired ‘little grey cells’. I mainly use paper to create graphic works which can be hung on the wall. I also make little objects (sculptures if you like) that have been given as memorable presents. Lately, I have been making quite a number of cards, given to people on very special occasions. I realised I had a knack for card-making, so I share some of them here. Most recently, I have started to exhibit some of my art works in my local area of Coventry.

Having worked with paper for a long time, my relationship with this medium has evolved over the years. Nowadays, I create what I consider to be “paper ballet” constructions. In a nutshell they express some kind of  visual choreography or narrative using various paper. Colours, textures and movement are my main focus, whilst incorporating mark making techniques used in painting as complementary elements. I am interested in memories, meaning making, nostalgia and narratives that are largely personal and autobiographical. Paper affords opportunities to express these. Its tactile nature, its lightness and its capacity to retain a physical state (memory), are what draws me to this centuries-old material.

I have kept a blog detailing my development and wanderings as a creative over the years. I have continued it here — in this space. If you are interested, more works will be posted both on the blog and “Creation” sections, as time passes. These are all for your delectation. Have a little gander and leave a comment if you like. Happy browsing!
