J. Mallard writes:-
by a beautiful environment and a ‘menagerie’ of animals it seemed natural
to me as a youngster to want to capture in paint those things that were
closest to my heart.
a teenager I was incredibly fortunate to have an art teacher who nurtured
me, indeed planted the seed of my becoming a painter.
studied art at West Sussex College of Art & Craft and thence into graphic
design where I worked for some of the world’s top agencies. Working in
the capital I was frequently to be found in our National Gallery where,
often for hours, I admired many of the old masters – Turner, Greco, Angelo,
Leonardo etc., etc.
I have always been close to nature and my favourite getaway is to find
a spot close to quiet water and just sit and watch. Wildlife, and dogs
in particular, have featured powerfully in my life so it is natural that
many of my paintings reflect this.
is often a statement by an artist and is sometimes difficult for others
to interpret. I believe as an artist one can be selective – for me personally
art represents the beauty around me which I am happy to share with those
who appreciate my work.
