Early Career

Jonathan embarked on his artist journey in 2003, having previously sculpted for models and effects in TV and film and created props for the musical The Phantom of the Opera and the English National Opera. He went on to produce a myriad of sculptures for TV and film, as well illustrating children’s books, before focusing on his own work.

With emphasis on wildlife and aspects of the natural world he began showing his work in stately homes and gardens before being represented by a London gallery and introduced to the Affordable Art Fairs.

Following the early development of his sculpture, Jonathan was eager to move to more figuratively based sculpture, but didn’t want to lose the connection with nature. It was from this point that the body of work presented here evolved.

Sculpting, Commissions & Exhibitions

Jonathan’s sculpture is now highly sought after, with editions selling out quickly to his worldwide collector base. He exhibits in the UK and internationally through art fairs, exhibitions and galleries. He is shown regularly in New York, Singapore and Hong Kong through the Affordable Art Fairs. His outdoor sculptures have formed part of the annual RHS Wisley Sculpture trail and many other stately homes and gardens including Chenies Manor, Woburn Abbey and Savill Gardens in Great Windsor Park, part of the Crown Estate.

His sculptures are produced in bronze and resin bronze casts, suitable for indoors, outdoor public spaces and gardens. Each sculpture has an edition of 12 resin bronze and 9 bronze casts. Each of these are individually hand painted with his distinctive style.

His public commissions include 3 bronze sculptures for new schools in Kent, and a variety of pieces for private clients. His sculpture Withstanding The Fall won the annual Chelsea Art Society Sculpture Award.
