Birding Art Gallery for Bird Art, Bird Illustrations and Paintings of Birds,

The online gallery for bird art, bird paintings and bird illustration

Jonathan Pointer

Inspired by Victorian art, Jonathan's work has a traditional feel, combining realism and a strong sense of narrative.

His approach to painting is highly individual with all the elements within the painting - subject, flora and landscape - being treated with equal importance. His work is therefore, part portrait, part botanical and part landscape, an approach that places the subject within the context of habitat, time and place and gives added opportunity for narrative within the painting.

This dedication to all aspects of nature means that his larger paintings can take months to complete, with an output of no more than ten paintings a year adding to the collectability of his work.

Jonathan has exhibited widely and is represented by several leading galleries. Past exhibitions include The Society of Wildlife Artists, Christies Wildlife and Sporting Art auctions, Olympia Fine Art and Antique Fairs, The Royal West of England Academy and Birds in Art in America.

Working from his rural studio close to the river Teifi in Wales, Jonathan is also a passionate avicuturalist and member of the World Pheasant Association, rearing many of the birds that appear in his paintings.
