Born in 1943 Jeff Makin is a full-time artist, art critic and is recognized as one of Australia’s leading landscape painters. Makin is best known for his paintings en plein air of the Australian and European landscape. He has held numerous senior academic appointments while maintaining a flourishing artistic practice.

Jeff Makin’s artwork has long explored the picturesque and the sublime in nature, rooted in a specifically Australian locality. The You Yangs, the Grampians, Mt Buller, Wannon Falls and the Yarra Valley are all locations that Makin has visited intermittently throughout his career, in search of capturing those intangible qualities that form the essence of the land.

Landmarks by their very nature are immediately identifiable, partly through constructed imagery created through mediums such as painting, which become integral to our perception of them. 

Jeff Makin is represented in all National, State and most Regional and corporate collections in Australia. In 2007 a boutique hotel in East Melbourne was named in his honour.

Jeff Makin has been a finalist in the 2016,2017 and 2018 Tattersalls Art Prize in Brisbane.
