Johnathan Walker

Visit Artists Website

Jonathan, born in 1966, spent his early life near the market town of Leek in the Staffordshire Moorlands. His father, Keith, a more than competent painter, encouraged a natural ability to scribble in young Walker and while he struggled to find a direction in early life, he always found solace in throwing paint about. Having dabbled in fine art, theology and philosophy, he eventually qualified as an occupational therapist, working with people experiencing severe mental health problems. He has been working as a full time artist for the last ten years.
