Jonathan has an extensive background in film. He works as a designer / props finisher for Weta workshop in Wellington as well as pursuing his own artistic career.
His current painting series of old worn suitcases illustrate how clever he is at utilising light and the well travelled cases as the main subject of his works are symbolic of time, stories - special memories.
Each work is incredibly detailed and beautifully executed in oil paint on either canvas or board.
Jonathan's work is held in the Wallace Trust Collection and he as exhibited in the Adams Portrait Awards.
