Jon was born in Kent and is currently Research Fellow within the school of Architecture at the University of Portsmouth. A geologist by training and book illustrator for 25 years, his work revolves around response to space and place using generative sound, drawing, word, graphics and subtle intervention.
In 2007 he received an Art Plus 07 award for Alternative Platform on the South's rail network and a Leverhulme Artist in Residency award in 2008. Jon works closely with galleries and organisations including Dada South, CIBAS and Pallant House Gallery to develop opportunity and promote the voice of marginalised and disabled artists. He is a founder member of 'Alternative Platforms' and 'Route', both developing new audiences and accessible perceptions of public art.
