The world of Jonathan Shaw is a place of sweeping skies, vivid colours and smouldering horizons inspired by the artists extensive travels.
Jonathan was born in Leeds in 1959 and grew up watching his father, a professional painter, working. Jonathan Shaw always felt he was destined to follow in his father's footsteps and after several years spent working in a variety of jobs and running his own gallery he decided to devote himself to full time painting.
Jonathan was a finalist in the “Up & Coming Artist” categories for 2003 and 2004 and “Best Selling Artist” categories for 2004 and 2005 which was organised by the Fine Art Trade Guild.
His stunning landscapes of soft sweeping skies and seas are his signature pieces and are instantly recognizable. Jonathan has been one of the most successful landscape painters of the last decade and continues to build on that reputation.
