Jethro Jakson | artist in the studio | Porthilly Gallery | Cornwall

Artist and gallery-owner Jethro Jackson lives and works in North Cornwall and he is renowned for producing bold, painterly pictures which perfectly capture the mood, tones and unique ambiance of the wild Cornish coastline as it varies with the tides and changing seasons.


The Painting Process:


“The desire to create has always been there. In the landscape I spend time looking and absorbing the light and colours – I draw quickly and freely, taking note of things that capture my visual mind. I chose oil paint for its fluid, forgiving nature and it’s thick, tactile and unexpected qualities. I have learned to let the paint dictate and I allow the paintings to emerge quite naturally”. Jethro Jackson, 2016
