ABOUT ME...

English b.1997

Jack’s affinity towards art and making when he was a child flourished into a love for painting in his late teens, receiving a solid foundation art education at Westcliff Sixth Form.

Originally from bustling London, Jack quickly found his inspiration came from the individual, and the myriad stories that come from these people and cultures.

In his teens, Jack strove for Traditional Realism, but quickly evolved his process to incorporate a more figurative approach, realising that this best translated the personality of the persons and places that became subjects of his work.

Since leaving college in 2016, Jack has become known to his collectors around the world through various exhibitions and his online presence, but also for his combining of music and art. Several of his works playfully compose his own musical influences in a divine reverence, with striking forms and a flare for colour.

In 2018, however, Jack became enamoured with the people and history of the American West, through correspondence with contemporary Western artists and a short trip to the United States in the winter of that year.

Still intent on portraying the individual, Jack’s portfolio has now expanded to include cowboys, ranch hands, and the everyman of that period. He has begun to explore more narrative works, and hopes to further this idea in the immediate future.

Acclaimed contemporary painter, Fabian Perez, said of Jack’s work that it has “a recognisable style, dynamic, with great sense of colors. Full of rhythm and emotions.”

Jack has also worked with a number of acclaimed persons, including Ty Taylor, Wilko Johnson, and most recently, creating the album art for The White Buffalo’s 2020 release, ‘On The Widow’s Walk’.

Jack divides his time between the art studio and the music studio, writing songs with similar subjects to his art. Predominantly a self-taught guitarist and singer, he has spent the years since leaving college in 2016 touring in several bands, playing gigs to thousands around the UK and Europe.

Much like his combined use of different mediums, Jack also enjoys playing the Lap Steel, Mandolin, Bass, and the Banjo, and these can all be heard on the recordings he has made thus far.
