Jeffery Weatherford is a life-long artist and craftsman whose passion for creating has taken many forms over the years. Currently, he focuses on found object robot assemblage sculptures, which bring together disparate materials and shapes into whimsical, characterful figures. He also creates beautiful green man garden wall hangings that add a touch of magic to any outdoor space, and curiosities that blur the line between art and artifact.
In the past, Weatherford's work has included illuminated sculptural forms that play with light and shadow to create a sense of wonder and enchantment. He draws inspiration from the future and modern art, always looking for new and innovative ways to express his vision. But he is also deeply connected to the natural world and finds beauty and patterns in the natural forms around him.
Weatherford's talent has not gone unnoticed, and he has received many awards and grants over his lifetime. In fact, his artistic journey began at an early age when he was a finalist in the young people's art competition in the fourth grade. His first piece was even hung in the Indianapolis Museum of Art, setting him on a path of creativity and exploration that has continued to this day.
