Pilgrims' Way (detail)











I work mainly in acrylics because life is too short to wait for oils to dry, My inspirations are the land,and townscapes of Britain and my influences include Klee, Klimt, Hundertwasser, textiles, and traditional folk art.

When I paint I am constantly negotiating a position between opposing forces:  the abstract and the figurative, the structured and the intuitive, the real and the imaginary; they all meet and shake hands in my works but my main  aim is to create harmonies of colour and form that intrigue the eye and cheer the heart 

Anyway enough of that; please feel free to have a wander round the site, I  hope you enjoy my work and if you want to contact me further you can reach me at jsharvatt@harvattworks.co.uk
