About the tutor: Jon Martin was born in the UK but spent his formative years on a farm in Tasmania, where the vast landscapes ignited his early interest in art. Recognized for his exceptional drawing skills during his school years, Jon's artistic journey took a significant turn a decade ago when he was inspired by a renowned contemporary watercolour artist to explore the world of watercolours. For the past ten years, watercolour painting has been Jon's driving passion. His journey began with intensive learning under the guidance of an international artist for eight years. Additionally, he has enriched his skills by attending numerous workshops over the last four years. This blend of formal mentorship and continuous education has allowed Jon to develop a unique and masterful style. Jon has been actively exhibiting his work for the past four years, during which he has received awards, recognizing his talent and dedication.
