Meet the artist

Jon has been interested in aircraft since childhood partly owning to his father’s passion for military planes and frequent visits to air shows as a young child.

Jon has always shown a keen interest and talent in art and drawing. First with pencil sketches and after some success Jon decided to try his hand at painting, started with acrylic then moving on to oil paint which he has used on all his recent work.

Jon started painting the military planes he remembered from his childhood, with the Cold war Jets such as Lightnings, Buccaneers and Vulcans being his favourites and over the last 12 years, by combining his talent for drawing & painting and his passion for aviation Jon has produced the art work you see on this website.

Jonathan is an associate member of the Guild of Aviation Artists and frequently exhibits his work in the Guild's exhibitions. 2013 is proving to be an exciting year for Jon, with him attending various air shows throughout the summer and His work can be seen Coventry Air Museum and BAE Warton
