The World of Jonathan Shaw is a place of sweeping skies, vivid colors, and smoldering horizons inspired by the artist's extensive travels.
Jonathan was born in Leeds and, after several years spent working in a variety of jobs and running his own gallery, he decided to devote himself full time to painting. Jonathan was a finalist in the Up and Coming Artist 2003 and 2004 and Best selling Artist 2004 and 2005 which was organized 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. Jonathan is also a consummate storyteller. He is a familiar sight at area wildlife festivals, often accompanied by one of his falcons. Whether painted in oils, acrylics, or watercolor, Shaw's sensitive portraits of wildlife are rendered with exquisite detail.
Shaw lives on an historic WyeMills farm, where he keeps Paso Fino horses and several birds of prey. Shaw is an avid falconer who hunts on horseback, a practice dating at least to medieval times in Europe and the Middle East. He has had a passionate love for nature since childhood, and his fascination with both animals and plants is evident in his artwork, which will be on display in the lobby of Midshore Riverkeeper Conservancy throughout Plein Air Easton festival.
