Figurative Painter Jo Beer

Jo Beer Figurative Painter from Cornwall, UK

I am a full time figurative painter from Cornwall, UK.
I paint people because they intrigue me. There’s no such thing as an ‘ordinary person…everyone has something extraordinary about them that will make them stand out from the next person. I paint a mixture of people from everyday life, and celebrities that I admire for whatever reason.
I regularly undertake private commissions, these can easily be arranged directly via my website, Facebook or Instagram. I am happy to discuss commission ideas – historically, I have had some very unusual requests (two of which are attached here)

Medium of choice is oil – I like it’s fluidity, it suits my work. I like to use fairly broad brush strokes for a more expressive look, but enjoy fine brush clarity for details.

I have twice featured in Sky Art’s Portrait Artist Of The Year (screened in 2013 & 2016). In 2013/14 my self-portrait was reproduced repeatedly with a small selection of other artists to produce a huge Mona Lisa installation on Clapham Common, London.

I give regular tutorials in local high schools to coincide with the curriculum focussing on portraiture. ~ @jobeerart
