Part of Small Stories, Big Lives series by Rafael Gonzales, 2019 (1m 41s)
Jeremy Sutton was born in London, U.K., in 1961. He has always loved drawing. Whilst studying physics at Oxford University, Jeremy attended life-drawing, print-making and sculpture classes at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, and developed black and white photography in the Pembroke College darkroom. After completing his degree he moved to The Netherlands where he studied lithography and life drawing at De Vrije Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten, The Hague, while employed as a sales and marketing manager with a British scientific instruments company.
Jeremy moved to the heart of Silicon Valley in 1988, was introduced to digital paint in 1991 and became a full-time professional artist in 1994, exploring the latest digital paint tools and technologies. His work represents and interprets life in a colorful and vibrant way, inspired by great colorists such as Claude Monet and Henri Matisse.
Jeremy loves to share his creative process as a live event painter, performing all over the world at corporate events, conferences, private functions, arts festivals and museums. Jeremy, a Corel Painter Elite Master and founder of the PaintboxTV.com online learning resource, is also an art educator, writing books, producing video tutorials, and teaching workshops internationally.
In 2011 Jeremy performed live digital painting with the Cirque du Soleil Totem show in San Francisco. He was the featured iPad artist in 2013 at the opening of the “David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition” in the de Young Museum and in 2015 at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s “America Now! Innovation in Art” event. In 2018 Jeremy painted live on stage with Tommy Igoe’s Birdland All-Stars Band during their five week east coast “Art of Jazz” tour.
Jeremy lives and works in San Francisco.
