About J J Everson

Thanks for checking out some of my photos and art. Hope it pleases the eye and lifts the heart and the spirit. I started to mess around with art when I were just a bairn …. I think the first ‘real’ attempt at anything with shape and form was a caricature of Margret Thatcher (why?!), which I did at the tender age of around seven. From what I recall, it wasn’t particularly good. Art became one of my favourite subjects throughout school and my passion continued for it long after I left. I even sold a few works around Essex for a bit of extra pocket money. Oddly enough,or maybe not, I was refused entry into Colchester Institute on the grounds that my attempts at art were too ‘poppy’ … well, there you go. I stuck my fingers up to the pompous art establishment of then and followed my other childhood passion – archaeology. I then worked as an archaeologist and ended up studying it at Reading University, in the UK, and subsequently worked in the UK, Germany, Spain and Russia. Art always remained a passion, and I became involved in several archaeological illustration projects, which enabled me to keep a hand in. The illustration was more technical and less expressive, but I enjoyed it a lot. Photography has kind of grown on me, and more so recently, though as kid I used to go nuts with my cheap Boots instant camera. It was rubbish really, and pretty much most of the pics I took with it were too … but I enjoyed it for what it was. Anyway, I hope you find some of my photos and simple paintings resonate with you. If you choose to purchase any as prints or cards I would be most grateful. Otherwise, please just enjoy the gallery. You can join me on Facebook – I know the site is not to everyone’s taste, but I have a page on there for art and photography which is secure and mostly for friends and family – so please feel free to join me if you’re there.
