Jamie has a degree in Fine Art from Bath University and is a member of the Lake Artists Society. He grew up in Cumbria, taking his foundation course in Art and Design at Carlisle, before moving down to the Bath area in 1993. On graduation he was selected four times for exhibitions at the Mall Galleries in London, winning two Young Artist competitions in watercolours and oils. He became a member of the Bath Society of Artists, exhibiting his work there while in the Bath area. 


Jamie loves the work of the landscapists Fred Cumming and Kurt Jackson,

but his greatest influence has been his late father Tom Oldham. Jamie

enjoys working in several genres - landscape and still life - with multiple

media including acrylics, oils, cold wax and gouache. He is captivated

by the shifting light and colour that creates the atmosphere across the

landscape, and then trying to distill this into paint, mark making and colour.


He is currently taking regular commissions for landscapes as well as

exhibiting work in Cumbria and London. He works between his studio

and the open air - on the beach looking over to Scotland, and from his

back garden facing the Lake District fells, as well as traveling deeper into

the Lakes. He also enjoys working alongside other artists.
