I am a freelance artist and illustrator based in Winchester, UK.
I make traditional brush and pen artwork with a strong visual style for a variety of heritage and travel projects. I also create original paintings for exhibitions and private commissions.
I gained a BA in Fine Art painting from Newcastle University and achieved a Masters at the Winchester School of Art before setting up as a freelance illustrator. Working under the name ‘Illustration by Jonathan’, I have been able to licence my work commercially. But I also continue to exhibit my original paintings in shows around the UK.
I find self initiated projects through travelling and exploring. Making time to visit popular places around the UK, Europe and beyond. From this I try to bring a fresh perspective and a bold palette of colour to the landmarks you already know. And perhaps introduce you to a few new locations along the way.
