Jacob A. Pfeiffer(b. 1974Milwaukee, Wisconsin ) works in oil and is equally at home painting still life, figures and trompe l’oeil. He is a meticulous draftsman who paints his surroundings and selects objects that whet his appetite and capture his attention. He has an excellent eye for observing detail, his colors are accurate, and his compositions are playful and poignant.
Pfeiffer graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. From an early age he knew he wanted to become a professional artist and has steadfastly worked toward that goal.
