Jem Bowden

Jem Bowden is a watercolour specialist

with a deep affection for the medium,

appreciating the traditional methods

and applying them with a bold

approach. Inspired by a love of nature

and the outdoors from an early age,

he began to paint the landscape as a

child after first discovering JMW

Turner and then the French

Impressionists. Latterly, his love of the

British watercolour landscape tradition

has influenced his development as an

artist, with painting outdoors central to

his practice. Having won several

national awards including The Society

for All Artists' 'Artist of the Year', Jem

derives great reward from teaching,

demonstrating and socialising with

others around the subject of

watercolour painting. He is a regular

writer for Leisure Painter and other

magazines, wrote and tutors the

Watercolour Diploma course for

London Art College, runs weekly

classes in Bristol and enjoys

demonstrating at art clubs and
