Jon was born in London in 1976 and graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2002.​ Having worked abroad and travelled extensively, treasured memories of foreign places underpin the artwork. Adventures in East African defined his style of figure and landscape oil painting. And, more recently, time spent in Asia and the Med have been equally inspiring. Exploring new places, drawing and taking photos sustains creativity in his painting studio.

“Blue is my current colour of choice. Memories from Bali, Zanzibar, Côte d'Azur, Ionian and Balearic Islands amalgamate and distil alongside time spent on beaches in Devon and Cornwall. My most recent 2022 reconnaissance trip was spent in Venice Beach, LA. New paintings will seek to explore the vibrancy of LA beach culture and social body language in the zone where land meets sea.”
