JEAN WALKERBA (hons) Fine Art

Cannock, Staffordshire


Hi my name is Jean; I am a self-taught artist who works from my studio at home, in oil paint on canvas, My main subjects being Landscapes and Seascapes. I have recently undertaken portraiture, of which I am thoroughly enjoying and a new and challenging area for myself. I also have an extremely keen interest in Photography and I often paint from my collection of pictures, they prove an invaluable source of reference on wet and windy days when it is impossible or impractical to paint al-fresco.

I have been painting seriously since my children left home, that's when I realized that I had more time to pursue my passion - (painting) so In 2002 i decided to expand my vocabulary in art by enrolling into Lichfield & Tamworth College for a 2-year Art course to obtain my A-Level. In 2004 I was accepted into Wolverhampton University, graduating in 2007 with a B.A (hons) in Fine Art Painting at the age of 59.

Whilst at University' I was under the illusion that I would be learning to paint like the 'Great Masters' Caravaggio, Constable, William Hodges or J.M.W Turner, by learning their intricate techniques and styles. But; my tutors steered me into the direction of Installation projects, (with the minimalist amount of traditional styled painting) instead painting abstracts and working with wood and cardboard cut-outs emulating the famous silhouette artist 'Kara Walker' this was my path for the next 3-years.

Iconic buildings and areas of outstanding natural beauty have always inspired my love of architecture- nature and the diverse weather conditions. Cannock Chase Forest in Staffordshire has proved to be a gem of inspiration over the years with its beautiful panoramic vistas, wildlife and seasonal colours My Galleon ships from bygone eras, are resurrected in my Seascape paintings, with light playing a major role in the overall atmospherics of my work.
