After a highly successful career in advertising, Jack Bradley finally found his true vocation in life as a full-time artist. In 2002, Jack moved to the coast to absorb the atmosphere and study the inimitable light and shade of the ever-changing British landscape and coastal scenes. His distinctive representational style captures texture, light and atmosphere in his paintings.
He describes himself as being completely self-taught, but cites the influence of many great landscape painters in his work as Seago, Monet and Turner. Jack says, “Although I am self taught these artists have shown me how to see. I take risks with the paint, building layers of colour until I feel I have achieved a level of balance and harmony. Ultimately light is still the impetus that excites me to start a painting."
Jack, a real family man, lives on the Norfolk/Suffolk border with his wife, Charlotte, and their two young boys.
