Jeremy Sutton, author of the Painter Creativity series of books and founder of PaintboxTV.com, the online digital painting training resource, grew up in London and studied life drawing, sculpture and etching at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford, U.K., while earning a degree in Physics from Pembroke College, Oxford University. He then studied lithography and life drawing at the Vrije Academie, The Hague, The Netherlands, before moving to the heart of Silicon Valley, California, in 1988. He was first introduced to using the computer as a fine art tool in 1991, and has been exploring the digital art medium ever since, using, teaching and demonstrating every version of Painter (he is on the Corel Painter Beta Testing Team and Advisory Council). After a career with Oxford Instruments selling superconducting magnets in Northern Europe, India and Western United States, Jeremy became a full time professional artist in 1994. His art projects have ranged from painting a live digital portrait of Sir Richard Branson on the Virgin Atlantic San Francisco Inaugural to performing live painting as a tableau vivant at the de Young Museum (portraying artists Edgar Degas, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse) and performing live digital painting for the Cirque du Soleil TOTEM show in their Tapis Rouge tent in San Francisco.
