Leadership-image3 Jeff’s passion for science, medicine and creativity extend beyond assembling laboratories to Assemblage Art. Inspired by surrealist Joseph Cornell, his art integrates authentic antique and vintage elements of science and medicine. Each assemblage carries messages and implications that are subject to the interpretation of the observer. Jeff’s art has been shown at museums, galleries and art shows in Southern California.
