Everywhere, Mount Cook
|Growing up in Christchurch and working early in his career at Mt Cook fostered Jess’ love of the great outdoors. Jess now splits his time between NZ and Australia and is a regular traveller who enjoys the great outdoors, photography and observing the wildlife that inhabits a country’s (NZ, Australia, Nepal, Persia, Switzerland, Africa...just to name a few) wilderness. These adventures and time in the outdoors provides much inspiration for his realism work with birds, thar and other large creatures. Jess has been painting since 2000 and is the Chairman of Eco Artists NZ, a member of Australia Wildlife Artists and a the Whitehorse Arts Society.
