Jonathan has been passionate about wildlife and drawing from an early age, graduating  from Art College in 1998 with a First-Class Degree in Design. Working for many years as a Natural History Illustrator, Jonathan has produced a diverse portfolio of artwork for many organisations including National Geographic, Harper Collins and the BBC.

More recently, Jonathan’s focus has shifted from the stricter constraints of illustration to producing  more ‘fine art’ paintings inspired by personal encounters of wildlife in the British Isles and further afield.  He has been observing wildlife for over 35 years, documenting his sightings in notebooks crammed with sketches and field-notes over that time. This vast wealth of experience, getting to know his subjects first-hand through hours of study in the field, is reflected in the accuracy and authenticity of his work, beautifully documented with an ability to capture light that few other artists achieve. His paintings hang in public and private collections around the world.

‘My desire to paint wildlife stems from a life-long love of and respect for the natural world, and I strive to produce artwork that reflects something of the beauty and splendour of this most diverse of subjects. Whether you are interested in commissioning artwork, buying an original painting or simply enjoy viewing wildlife art, I hope there is something here for you.”signature 200x39 white transparent
