Jacob Sutton

Jacob Sutton, son of acclaimed artist Philip John Sutton, has enjoyed a long and well-travelled career, pairing photojournalism for titles such as Time magazine, with painting.

Originally drawing portraits in London and Parisian cafés, sailing boats in Poole and sketches of his time in Afghanistan, Sutton moved on to a long-term project of depicting life on Welsh farms. Sutton’s humorous, lively, colourful and inquisitive paintings of farm animals such as sheep, dairy cows, geese and chickens are acutely observed. He has even been known to paint his linen canvases on the ground in the fields and can frequently be found surrounded by chickens.
