Charles Jamieson MFA PAI PPAI

With a deft touch and a strong palette of colours, award winning artist Charlie Jamieson has a gift for capturing the warmth, light and vivid tones of sun-drenched locations around the world – buildings, land, deep blue skies and dazzling seascapes. “Painting the heat and light is hugely important to me,” he says. “Strong colours are so satisfying to work with. I don’t do angst. I’m really a happy, positive person.”

His bold, confident paintings have won a growing following for the Ayrshire-based artist, including novelist John Le Carré, comedian Harry Enfield, TV journalist Kirsty Wark and actress Keeley Hawes. Jamieson’s work also appears in the offices of The Prudential, Biggart Baillie, Caledonian Breweries and in many other corporate and private collections in the UK and abroad.

A graduate of Glasgow School of Art, Charles has divided his career between art and acting. On returning from a two-year art scholarship in Texas, acting became his main source of income. The security of a six-year stint in STV’s long-running drama Take The High Road coincidentally gave him the freedom to develop his painting style and by 2000, after a successful solo show in Hampstead, he was able to turn to painting as a full-time occupation.

His exhibition at Doubtfire Gallery in 2013 was only his second solo exhibition in his home country.

“My idea of heaven is to be somewhere hot in the middle of the day with a sketchbook and a camera, collecting images to take back to my studio. Once there, I lose myself in the memory of those moments. ”
