Born in 1965. In 1990 Jonathan graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee with a B.A.(Hons.) in Fine Art and was awarded the Pat Holmes Memorial Prize for Drawing. 'Jonathan was hailed as one of the most exciting young landscape artists of his generation, with his work popular with both individual buyers and private collectors. McIntosh Patrick in particular reckoned his work was outstanding, and he was described as a natural successor to the Dundee-born painter of the natural world.'
Jonathan lives in the Angus countryside and works as a full-time artist.
In 1994 he was commissioned by distillers Matthew Gloag and Sons to produce 7 paintings depicting the "Open Championship" golf courses. These were published as prints and distributed nationwide to promote the firm's sponsorship of the Championship.
