My new production introducing the Welsh painter Jonathan Brier has been shown on German tv in English with German subtitles. It is based on Graeme Stevenson´s video whose English presentation starts after a 2 minute prelude in German.

Jonathan Brier holds a degree in illustration but taught himself to paint in oils using quick drying alkyd colours. In this demonstration he paints a portrait of his rescue dog.

Craig is known throughout the world for his skilful portraiture, sporting imagery and stunning landscapes. His skill in portraiture has led him to being commissioned to paint Sir Edmund Hillary, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the first ascent of Mt Everest in 1953.

In 2010 Craig was appointed by Queen Elizabeth II the Queen’s Service Medal for his contribution to the arts. In this video Craig paints a landscape in oils.
