Jake Winkle studied at Bournemouth College of Art and Design and at Brighton Polytechnic. After a spell in industry, he became a full time professional artist in 1993.
Jake exhibits widely in the south of England and in 2004 he was a finalist in the Daily Mail's 'Not The Turner Prize' competition and successfully exhibited in The Mall Galleries in London. In 2007 Jake's work was selected for the Royal Society of British Artists exhibition and since early 2008 he has been contributing articles about his painting style for The Artist magazine. In 2009 he won the prestigious St. Cuthberts Mill Award at the Society of Equestrian Artists annual exhibition in The Mall Galleries, London.
Jake sees his work in terms of shape, colour and tone. Inspired by light and movement his paintings are a reflection of the world around him. As well as exhibitions he has undertaken many fine art commissions for individuals and notable organisations including The National Trust.
In addition to his paintings Jake runs workshops and masterclasses in his home county of Dorset.
