British born/American artist Jason Pritchard is best known for his landscape and seascape oil paintings of New England.
His atmospheric painted scenes capture a sense of space and connection to the East Coast region he loves and works with. His paintings focus on the elements of the outdoors, capturing the seasonal hues and weather conditions emphasized by an unfolding impressionistic skyline.
A keen drawer from an early age, it wasn’t until his early 20’s on a serendipitous and a once in a lifetime adventure trip to South Africa that motioned his passion and journey for painting. After spending several days visiting and photographing the Kruger National Park, heartache set in when his photos were lost. Visiting the galleries in vibrant Cape Town a few days later, he felt inspired and compelled to recapture his best memories of the trip via the medium of watercolor painting instead.
The next few years he worked hard developing his style in London, England, before he moved to the US in 2005 and studied at the Art Students League of New York where he began working in oils. He now lives in Connecticut, where he paints the local beaches, inlets and coastal scenery of the Gold Coast. He has exhibited work in New York City, Long Island and his home region of Connecticut.
