Gallery 'N' Gifts October guest artist, Jeff Peal

Gallery 'N' Gifts

Jeff Peal has been doing art his entire life. He enjoys working with all types of mediums from pastels and pencils to metal and wood. Currently he enjoys carving more than anything. It is a real challenge and his style develops more with every pile of sawdust. He picked up the art of carving from his friend and well known local artist Kent Holmgren. He was fascinated by what Kent could create and had to give it a shot.

His pieces often depict wildlife and old west themes, which have always been his interests. He has lived in Bear Valley Springs for 16 years with his wife Jaymme and their animals.

Jeff's art will be featured at Gallery 'N' Gifts through October.

Gallery 'N' Gifts is located at 100 W. Tehachapi Blvd. and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
