About JT

It’s so true that nature has already created its masterpiece and all an artist has to do is copy it. That said you need a natural love of your subject if you’re going to dedicate most of your life to painting it. I always tell me people paint what inspires you as that’s what I do, I still get exited every time I put a blank canvas on the easel.

Prior to being an artist JT was an artiste! This has been beneficial in his art career especially as guest artist aboard the fleets of Cunard and P&O as he has an almost unique talent of being able to paint whilst doing impersonations! His previous career saw him as a cabaret artiste, comedian and impersonator then went on to teach himself guitar, playing an incredible 1500 professional ‘gigs’! These days he has no interest in the guitar.. it’s all about the paintbrush!
