Jamie Medlin ~ Marine Artist
Position in Old Barn: Yet to be installed
Jamie’s photographic style is based on detail and accuracy gained from his background in illustration.
His hope is that these skills, combined with an understanding of light and a natural eye, will lead to paintings with mood, atmosphere and realism and to portray scenes and events as they actually were.
