JJ Kent is a figurative painter with many years of experience as a gallery artist, illustrator and educator. His passion is for landscapes, fuelled in part by the rich art history of the Flemish region and inspired by his own travels around the world. Subjects can include dramatic desert scenes or quiet country lanes. If the atmosphere of a place inspires him, he makes immediate compositional notes, and returns later to paint directly from nature. His aim is to communicate the enjoyment of being in a particular landscape with everyone and anyone who views his work, young and old alike.
