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 societies.
