John Jermyn lives on the edge of the cliff at Fennell’s Bay, Crosshaven in County Cork, Ireland. This proximity to nature has nurtured in him a fascination with landscape – the power, atmosphere, and mood that the seas, waterways and coastlines inspirit and generate.
His paintings explore different aspects in contrasting settings varying from tranquil shorelines or a still canal to raging high seas, initially allowing a glimpse of its subject but then encouraging the viewer into something else, something bigger.
Over the years, he has gained a deep understanding of the Irish landscape, its people and its past. This understanding has created a highly individual painter who is held in high regard by those who are familiar with his work, which is becoming increasingly well known.
John’s proximity to nature’s elements provides him with the purest form of inspiration. John holds regular painting classes at The Framemaker in Carrigaline, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. The classes are suitable for all, from absolute beginner to the more experienced artist, using acrylic, oil and watercolour mediums. These small group painting sessions are relaxed yet gently challenging and it is hoped that one leaves with a feeling of satisfaction and a sense of achievement. One to one painting sessions are also available.
John also holds painting classes in Cork at The Sacred Heart Centre, Western Road on Mondays, morning and afternoon sessions.
