Jeffrey T Larson Biography

Jeffrey T Larson is a nationally known artist, recognized particularly for his realist still life, figure and portrait paintings. He was born in Two Harbors, MN on July 19, 1962, and was raised in the suburbs of Minneapolis/St. Paul. Between 1980 and 1984, Jeffrey Larson was trained in the manner of the Old Masters at Atelier Lack, a studio/school founded by Richard Lack (1928-2009) whose traditions and training methods reach back through Impressionism to 18th century French academies. He deepened his education by studying anatomy at the University of Minnesota (1983), studied the art and history in European museums (1987), and bronze casting and finishing at private foundries (1988).

Jeffrey T. Larson and his wife, Heidi, met when he was the head instructor and assistant director at Atelier LeSuer. He has, since then, painted professionally full-time. Since 1990 they have lived in a renovated school in rural Maple, Wisconsin, where they raised and home-schooled their three children: Brock, McKenzie and Sophia Rose.

He has had over twenty One-man exhibitions and has shown in multiple galleries across the nation, placing over 750 works in private collections.
