STATEMENT

My paintings typically are metaphors referencing the study of the natural world in relation to cultural patterns and perspectives. I question these observations in order to pursue, understand and communicate awareness of  life’s complexities. Are the patterns global or local and why? What shapes us? Society, government, or circumstance?

BIOGRAPHY

Born in Germany, Ursula Ann Jeffcoat goes by her childhood nickname Uschi. She is German-American and finds her home in both cultures.

Although she works in all mediums, watercolor is her favorite due to the thought process its execution requires. Typically her work is a visual moment of reflection of the life and spaces she encounters.

She holds a degree in German and a minor in art from the University of South Alabama. Most recently she has returned to the classroom to teach German within the International Baccalaureate program. She has also worked within the nonprofit sector as the executive director of the Florence Regional Arts Alliance. Her career paths tend to vacillate between a love for language and the Arts.

Uschi lives in Florence, South Carolina with her husband, 2 boys and slightly spotted, furry friend named Charlotte.
