Jemima moved to Shropshire with her husband in 2007 and began painting pieces which could be framed and hung on the wall. She found a whole new wealth of inspiration in the rolling hills, farmland and woods that surrounded their house.

She feels compelled to paint and draw every day and her paintings are a celebration of the natural world around us. Jemima paints in acrylics on to gessoed panels or wood which is then varnished. Acrylics are a quick drying and versatile medium which suits her illustrative style.

“I was born on a farm in Devon but lived for most of my life in Sussex. I studied illustration and design at Northbrook College in Horsham. After leaving college, I spent six months in Rome as an au-pair. The frescoes and decorated furniture I saw, as well as the Italian paintings, proved to be a great inspiration which changed my life. Upon returning to England, a friend suggested I try restoring and then painting furniture which I salvaged from auctions and antique markets. I continued to do this for a few years, which I really enjoyed.  I am particularly influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement, and medieval illuminated manuscripts and I think this comes through in my paintings.”
