I have worked as a town planner, a Geologist in East Africa and Australia, a senior manager in IT for BHP and Woodside and a management consultant.

After studying for a Diploma of Art at the prestigious Claremont School of Art in Perth, I started working as a professional artist in 1994. Since then I have had countless exhibitions. I have sold well over 1000 paintings and my work is represented in collections around the world. Examples of my work and copies of my exhibition invitations are available on my website which is the oldest web gallery in the world. Just search for Jeremy Holton artist.

I teach painting at my studio/gallery in the Perth Hills and our arts guest house in NE Thailand by the Mekong River (Thailand Painting Holidays). I teach techniques including oil pastel and inks and modelling paste/acrylic/quick-drying oils and glazing. My main emphasis is on helping students to loosen up and paint creatively from imagination.

My own paintings are in acrylic and oil on canvas or cotton rag paper, incorporating a wide range of techniques from rough brushing, in which I drag paint across the canvas, to the glow of multiple translucent glazes. Recently, I have been working in digital painting mediums, experimenting, extending my range and style.

Nestled in the Perth hills is an art class like no other. I’ve been painting over 25 years and never seen a technique quite like this one. Jeremy kindly provided anything I wasn’t able to find for the class. Book in with a friend and enjoy trying a very different approach to art!
