Jay Nottingham was born in 1972 in Bedfordshire. From an early age Jay has followed in the footsteps of his artistic family. His Grandfather and Great Grandfather were both artists, so colour and design have surrounded him throughout his life.
Jay has no formal training as an artist. He developed his own technique and subjects to paint. The impasto style of Jay's work which is created with a palette knife gives his paintings dimensional effect. Jay now lives in South Wales with is family as a full time artist.
