Jonathan works from his studio near the Thames Estuary often beginning work out in the location. The Thames Estuary has always been a very important inspiration for his work. However, landscape of all descriptions have formed the basis of his output over many years. He has developed a deep awareness and intense relationship with the land observing and painting its many changing moods and ever changing light.
His painting methods frequently use textural materials from these areas which are embedded into the paint creating an interesting surface to the work. He applies colour using a wide variety of techniques to capture the flickering light and atmosphere of these locations.
His work is held in private collections in the UK, USA, Spain, Italy, Holland, France, Oman, Germany and Canada. He has received a variety of awards.
