Matthew Haydn Jeanes
Matt quite simply loves to paint, he loves to create.
From an early age he knew that's what he would always do...and he has.
This love of painting has won him exhibitions at schools, got him through his education, won him awards, given him his first job, set him up in his own companies (and others) seen him teach art, illustrate key characters for other companies, (including Disney, Hallmark, UKG, Athena and Andrew Brownsword), run brand licensing, and become an art director and creative director, going on to develop greeting cards product for major companies in the UK.
Moving on, Matthew has discovered his own 'voice' and identity in his art, focusing on portraiture and his original watercolour paintings.
He continues to teach regularly and has written for popular art magazine 'Artists & Illustrators' for the past 5 years (after coming 'runner up' in their Artist of the Year competition in 2013).
Matthew has been working hard for the last couple of years building up enough pieces for his own exhibition (hopefully) in 2021.
