Jonathan Schofield was born In Manchester, but moved to London where he has been based for over 25 years. Schofield did his Masters in (Fine Art) Painting at the Royal College of Art, South Kensington. Whilst at the Royal College, Schofield was taught by the likes of Peter Doig, John Stezaker, Sean Scully and Helen Chadwick. Schofield sold out his degree show and was awarded a distinction, with work entering permanent collections including the RCA’s.
He went on to win a prestigious Scholarship to study for 6 weeks in Asilah, Morocco. Schofield also spent a Summer in New York and enjoyed painting Sabbaticals at the College Studios in Paris and Rome.
After the RCA Schofield had a hugely successful career as a Creative Director. In 2014 he started to paint again full time and his work quickly began to attract collectors and an audience through the democratisation of Social Media.
Jonathan's often large paintings have been acquired by collections in Copenhagen, Germany, the US and of course in London.
Late 2020 sees the exciting beginnings of a collaboration with Serena Morton in London.
