My name is Jeffery Saddoris and I have deep-dive conversations with creative people about what they do and why they do it.
I recorded my first podcast in 2008. I was hooked and have been recording conversations with creative people ever since. Here are links to my current shows.

“Jeffery's conversations about the creative process are both inspiring and thought provoking. I look forward to every new episode as a new chance to delve into what it means to be a human, alive, and looking at the world around me. ”

My mixed-media paintings are rooted in materials and inspired by artists like Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombly. My work combines multiple layers of chroma, emulsion transfers, ephemera, and found objects to create both literal and narrative depth.View The gallery
