As a tutor, demonstrator and practicing artist, Jem lives for painting, and works purely in the medium of watercolour. In 2014 he received the SAA’s (Society for All Artists) award of ‘Artist of the Year’.
Through his love of being out in the natural world, and his great appreciation for watercolour’s power to express it, Jem has developed an ‘impressionistic’ style of portraying the landscape. With a sincere and forever striving regard for the craft, his approach utilises mainly traditional methods, but with a fresh and bold application.
Jem says the primary aim of his painting is that it should be evocative, and hopes that it channels a personal interpretation of the beauty which provides his inspiration. The uniquely fluid, fresh and transparent medium of watercolour should play its own inimitable part in the resulting artwork.
Though landscape is his specialism, the fundamental techniques Jem emphasises in his tuition can be applied to any subject.
Most importantly he is able to show painters of any level – from absolute beginner upwards – simple and pratical ways to create great pictures, that will inspire you to develop your own skills and artistic style.
