Jonathan Warrender


Jonathan Warrender spent his childhood in Somerset, moving aged 12 with his family to Scotland in 1966, where he continues to live with his wife and children in Ayrshire. He studied at Camberwell School of Art (1972-1976) under Anthony Eyton, where he developed his own detailed technique and revived the tradition of the ‘Bird’s Eye View’, brought to this country by Flemish artists in the 16th and 17th centuries.

In 1980 he was commissioned to paint Innes House in Morayshire, which set him on a path of painting country estates and their landscapes, among them Dunphail House (Forres), Cawdor Castle (Nairn) and The Old Kirk (Altyre, Forres) in Scotland and Stowell Park (Chichester) and Ditchley Park (Oxfordshire) in England. He also painted golfing subjects, and Lord’s cricket ground.

In August 1991 he was commissioned by the council of Ayr to paint that town.

He has also worked in France and America.
