Jeff Strong is drawn to the improbable magic of sand sculpting. He sees art in nature and employs his love of science in his work, often emphasizing open space and artistic form. After a few years of competing as part of a team in the Pacific Northwest, Jeff branched out on his own. In 2005, his classic sculpture of a dragon arching its neck to devour a sand sculptor went viral on the Internet and is still popular on the Internet. Since then, his gravity-defying sculptures have continued to receive awards at the highest levels of competition. Jeff treasures the friendships he’s made through sand sculpting and is humbled by his struggle to keep up with the many talented artists on the beach. A challenge, he adds, that is a lot of fun!
Jeff is from Tacoma, Washington
