Elaine Jeffrey

Elaine Jeffrey is a Scottish artist currently based in Germany. Jeffrey grew up in the west coast of Scotland in a family where artistic exchange was part of the family make-up. In the early 80’s, while travelling in America, Jeffrey started to document her new home with a borrowed camera. Photography quickly became her method for portraying and exploring both her environment and emotional expression. On returning to Scotland Jeffrey studied Photographic Art at Edinburgh Napier university where she gained her Bachelor of Arts. She exhibits in solo and group exhibitions and her works are in many private collections in Europe and America.
