About his work Jeffery states,
In my observation of the sky and land relationship there seems to be unity. Yet I see an abstraction at play, a constant changing of appearance, color and form, a mystery of relationships sometimes a peaceful quietness or of turbulent force. What led me to explore in painting my own interpretation of these relationships is this mystery and an equal love for representation and abstraction and linking the essence of past and present ideals. Though rooted in observation, it is more essential my paintings depict a reflection of truth, a rightness and embodiment of place, a personal interpretation rather than an exact reproduction.
