Jamie Medlin

Jamie Medlin

Born in Penryn, now living in Falmouth, Jamie trained as an illustrator at Falmouth School of Art and Design where he gained the technical knowledge and fine art skills that have become the basis of his style today. After several years in this career working in London and Australia, he returned home to his beloved Cornwall and has taken these skills into maritime art.

One of the main outlets for his original artworks is Christie's in London where he submits regularly. Christie's have said:
Jamie Medlin is one of the finest living marine artists, whose work has garnered international recognition. His near photographic attention to detail is perfectly suited to the yachts he depicts, evoking memories of the golden age of yachting, which when combined with the colour and vibrancy of his paintings makes these works modern masterpieces.
"My simple aim is to do justice to the beauty which has inspired people forever and continues to bring people back to visit year after year. I'm fascinated by the nuances of light, from minute to minute; affected by the time of day, weather conditions, seasons and tides. The combination of these factors create an infinite possibility of scenes and moods, all of which can be pleasing to the viewer. Cornwall's beauty is unquestionably stunning. If I can replicate it, my job is almost done. . . " - Jamie Medlin
