About the artist, Jeff Rogalski

About the artist, Jeff Rogalski: Born and raised in Chicago, Jeff found his way to Dallas in 1987 and has enjoyed a successful and abundant 30+ year career in Marketing Communications and Design. He graduated with a B.S. in Design from the Institute of Design at Illinois Institute of Technology. 

Jeff started drawing in grade school, started playing guitar at 11, started his own 4-piece band at 13, and has been writing poetry and writing, playing, and singing music most of his adult life.

He loves natural wood and, in discovering the many species of exotic hardwoods, he began making cutting boards in 2011 and the creative complexity of his designs grew into works of art.

Jeff wanted to introduce the world to these remarkable, natural configurations of end grain in species like Bubinga, Padauk, Purple Heart, Wenge, Yellow Heart, Nogal, Sapele, Lacewood. Most of the world has neither seen nor appreciated the beauty in end grain, especially in exotic hardwoods! This was Jeff’s opportunity to show the world the beauty and abundance of these exotic hardwoods by featuring the end grain in his art. Thus, the birthing of his EndGrainArt!

This is an exhibition of his 50 EXPRESSIONS OF ABUNDANCE: FEATURING THE END GRAIN OF EXOTIC HARDWOODS. For Jeff, creating art is a spiritual experience allowing the infinite abundance of the divine in each of us to express our own irresistible impulses to create something beautiful. Each of these beautiful creations in each of us becomes creative expressions of our deepest selves.
