Jay Nottingham has become famous for his dramatic landscape style over recent years and now enjoys a strong collector base. Jay followed in the footsteps of his artistic family, with his grandfather and great grandfather both being artists, so colour and design have surrounded him throughout his life.
Born in 1972 in Bedfordshire, Jay has developed his own technique and subjects to paint. Aside from his stylised landscapes these include woodland and coastal views. The impasto style of Jay’s work is created with a palette knife giving his paintings a three-dimensional effect. The bold style characteristic of his landscapes combines beautifully with the subtle grey and blue tones of the skies. When framed this tonal contrast set against the bright foreground created with a palette knife combines for a stunning effect.
