Jason was trained as an illustrator and has in recent years become intrigued
by portraiture. Highly influenced by the likes of Lucien Freud and Chuck Close,
he has painted several large scale sectional portraits. These were inspired
by the mismatched group portraits produced by his Art pupils. Each panel was
deliberately painted in isolation to give different tonal and colour qualities.
Many of Jason's paintings have been exhibited in local galleries
in recent years and he continues to take on comissions for oil
and brick portraits.
