Details

Local artist Jon Houser is a contemporary impressionist oil painter inspired by every day life. He paints ‘en plein air’ (on the spot, in open air) – often in all weathers, setting up his easel wherever the fancy takes him……

Born in Surrey in 1958, Jon completed a 4 year apprenticeship as a mechanical fitter at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Aberporth. He started painting in 1995 after taking an Access to Art course at Carmarthen Collage, where his talent for painting was recognised.

Jon is also influenced by his love of the steam railway and in 2012 he became an associate member of the Guild of Railway Artists and has exhibited at the Royal Dockyard, Chatham and the Severn Valley Railway with the Guild of Railway Artists “Railart” exhibitions. He has work in private collections throughout the country and in 2012, his oil painting “The Castle at Neyland” was purchased by the National Library of Wales for the National Collection, Aberystwyth.
