About The Artist

“I have concentrated on the portrait, as for me, the face is an endlessly interesting subject to paint, and one to which we can all relate.

I work from photographs, as they provide an accurate foundation upon which the painting can develop, whilst still keeping the subtlety of a moment’s expression. Most of my portraits are Acrylic on Canvas or Board but I also use Pastel and Conte on Tinted Paper.

For a further selection of my work and details on prices and ordering, please visit my website.”

Happy Mum with Commission of Milo

‘Thanks for the portrait of our lovely boy Milo! It’s one thing to capture the facial elements of a person accurately, it’s another to portray something of the metaphysical/spirit of the subject. You do both… in spades. Thank you so much for investing so much care and intelligence into every stroke. We love it!’

Artist Biography

“Drawing and painting have been important to me since childhood. My best presents were cartridge pads, tins of crayons and paintboxes. The simple pleasure of making ‘pictures’ was so much more fun than maths homework or Evensong choir practice with all those psalms; but then, what isn’t?

At school I had a wonderful art teacher, Pat Adams, who encouraged me to explore different media and study painters past and present. So a new world opened up and with it, dreams of being an artist. I took a Foundation Course in Art and Design in Epsom and then started a Fine Art Degree in Bristol. I continued to paint during my spare time from work and gradually concentrated on portraiture.

The human face and form crosses all boundaries and is therefore the most familiar and accessible of subjects. I had painted family and friends from life over the years, but once I started working from photos, my confidence grew. To start with this made me uneasy, until I found that painters – Sickert, for example, had used photos as a starting point. From those early efforts I began to get commissions from family, friends and then by word of mouth. I look to the portraits by artists such as Degas, Sargent and Freud to help me with ideas about brushwork, composition and colour.”

About The Artist

I am a sculptor, predominantly working in stone and metal, but I also paint and draw when the need arises. When working with stone I make figurative pieces, human or animal and I tend to let the stone lead the way. What I mean is I draw the inspiration from the particular lump of rock and in a sense release the image I can see within it.

Working with metal is very different, as I have a more deliberate and focused approach. It also lends itself well to making larger structures and allows me to develop more ambitious ideas for outdoor or garden sculptures.

I am known to almost everybody as Jericho because lots of people find my real name difficult to pronounce. As of 1st January 2006, I became a full-time artist. For the most part of my career I have been working mostly to commissions as well as working steadily to complete a body of work that I can show.

So, if you are thinking of commissioning a sculpture for a garden (or other outdoors or indoors space) please feel free to contact me to discuss any aspect of the process.

Chronology

I was born in Subotica (former Yugoslavia) in 1970 and started practising art there at an early age. It was only after I emigrated to Britain and after completing my art degree that I became a professional artist (BA Fine Art, First Class Honours Degree). I am also known as Jericho – a name given to me by my wife and now adopted as an alias.

My portfolio consists not only of sculptures and three dimensional works, but also paintings and drawings. I love working in stone and metal, but I've also worked with cold casting and wood. I have had a number of commissions for paintings and sculptures, both abstract and figurative, for corporate clients and individuals.

I was a member, for two years, of 2 by 4 Artists Artists group in Horsham and took part in 2 group exhibitions in 2005.

I organised a venue and showed work, with two other artists, at the Artists and Makers Festival Open Houses and Studios in Horsham in July 2006. I also had a solo exhibition at Roffey Park Institute, Horsham in 2008.

I exhibited at the Acorn Galleries in Billingshurst, West Sussex - one man show from 5th April to 25th April 2007 and the Quaker Art Week in Dorking in 2008. I had a solo exhibition of drawings, paintings and sculptures in June 2000, in Leicester and was exhibited at South Croxton Biennial Art Festival in Leicestershire 2001 and the London Affordable Art Fair in Autumn 2004
