Jeff Riggan was born and raised in Orlando, Florida. He is a self-taught artist who has been creating since he was able to pick up a brush. In the early 1990’s he landed a job with Nickelodeon Studios. “This was my introduction to the entertainment industry which let me spread my wings creatively. As a freelance artist, I had the opportunity to experience and paint a whole new world.”
Jeff went out on his own in 2000 and created Monster Art Studio. Since then, he has painted many sci-fi murals for restaurants, did live paintings at local art shows, and broadcasted on a Florida TV station as a featured local artist. Since moving to Atlanta in 2012, Jeff has worked for production studios creating props for commercials and movies. His art has been featured in many local venues and shows including the Inman Park Arts Festival and his felted characters were featured in Stuffed Magazine‘s Autumn 2013 issue.
“The term ‘think outside the box’ is used often; I see a box and run it over @ 90mph!”
