Since the beginning, Jonathan has been inspired by the beauty of the human form, sculpting mainly in clay,and then having it cast into bronze through the traditional lost wax process.

He is especially inspired by dance and has shown his appreciation for this subject in his sculptural work with dancers from a variety of ballet companies, including Fiona Chadwick, former principal with the Royal Ballet.

Among the many prestigious commissions is Jonathan’s creation of a five metre high bronze monument for London’s Belgrave Square, commissioned by the Duke of Westminster as a tribute to the first Marquis of Westminster.

In Scotland there is the life size bronze for the Scotsman Newspaper, unveiled in Edinburgh by the Her Majesty the Queen.

Possibly his most moving creation is the life sized memorial portrait of Mother Teresa that was unveiled in Calcutta by the Governor of Calcutta at the Sisters of Mercy Convent, where it has received and continues to receive thousands of visitors.

One of his most recent completed projects is a life size portrait of Yasmin le Bon. The partnership of artist and muse has resulted in the creation of a work of art Jonathan considers to be his best to date.
