Jon's scenes capture sweet moments and places in the everyday; the familiar, the nostalgic, and the iconic markers that suggest his relaxed coastal urban neighbourhood.
Jon Challen came late to painting but now has sell-out shows when he exhibits his works. "When I started painting I felt like I found a friend. I see my inspiration in the paintings as "moments" in our everyday lives. They come from seeing the beauty in an everyday experience; like driving to work looking out the window and seeing something very beautiful."
