Jerry Smith is a local artist based in Swanmore, Hampshire.
Originally from Southampton, he studied at Portsmouth College of Art and then at the University of Portsmouth.
Following a degree in computer graphics he spent several years working in the video games industry, before going freelance and running his own creative media business with partner and fellow artist Vanessa Wells.
Jerry paints landscapes of the Meon Valley and further afield, in a vivid representational style.
He is often drawn to the subtle light and shadows cast across the rural landscape, especially on sunny winter days.
Jerry runs workshops and demonstrations for local art groups, as well as his own oil painting classes in Wickham.
