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 paintings, portraits and brick portraits.
