Jeffrey Thomas Burke worked for many years as an advertising photographer and commercial director. He was an early adopter of digital photography and imaging as a part of his studio practice as early as 1990. His photo studio gained a lengthy roster of corporate clients, ad agencies and publishing companies in the United States and abroad. His work received numerous awards and was featured in various publications. In 2006 Jeffrey and his wife, artist Lorraine Triolo, retired from commercial practice and re-opened BurkeTriolo Studio as a fine art studio and publishing house. Jeff’s current body of work speaks to the concept of Paradise as a myth, and Man’s need for purpose and a meaningful place in the cosmos. His unique, elaborate image compositions are digitally collaged using original photos of vintage costume jewelry and other elements. JT Burke lives and works in South Pasadena, California. He currently serves as the chair of the Brooks Institute Board of Trustees.
