Jeremy Bear

People and their lives are at the heart of my work. Experiences and observations made while on journeys around Europe, India and Japan have inspired many of the paintings. Recently I’ve also started to make portraits of crafts people in action. Some are friends and others I have met and watched at work while travelling. My other great passion is for the sea and sailing. This is revealed in my paintings and drawings of working boats of many kinds which I’ve come across in Britain and further afield.

After studying at Brighton College of Art I worked as an exhibition designer and then pursued a long career as a film and television designer at the BBC, Yorkshire Television, where I was Head of Design, and freelance. I have designed productions as varied as Dr Who and Tomorrow’s World, including dozens of dramas and independent films.

My work is in private collections in the UK, France, Spain, Greece, Canada, London and New Zealand. The paintings and drawings seen here are for sale and arrangements can be made by telephoning or emailing me directly. Many more of my paintings and drawings can be seen on my website. Limited edition prints and cards of many of the works can be bought on-line and sent by post.
