Growing up in Milaca, Minnesota, Jeff Boutin made art as a youthful diversion from his epilepsy. Illustrator of comic books, custom painter of cars, and eventually miller of carpets and rugs, Jeff turned to painting full time when he sold his business in 2003. (His beautifully colored, hand-tufted rugs and carpets can be found in homes and businesses throughout the United States.) He loves the discovery of forging his own way through his art: “I want my paintings to reflect great power and emotional intensity, yet show a simple happiness.” Jeff hopes that you enjoy his artwork as much as he enjoys creating it.
