Art Brokerage: Jon Rattenbury British Artist: b. 1966. Born in Cheltenham, England in 1966, Jon Rattenbury's family immigrated to America when he was just 3 years old settling in Northern California. Though completely self-taught as an artist, Jon draws on his family and childhood experiences for his artistic ability. After graduating school, Jon designed stained glass and etched glass windows for various companies. He also worked in a photo studio where he retouched and airbrushed photographs for magazines and commercial projects. Rattenbury also worked in the printing industry where he learned all about the art of lithography. In the 1990's, Rattenbury was discovered by a publisher in Southern California that gave him his first major gallery exposure. This led him to leave the printing business to pursue his painting full-time. Rattenbury's popularity grew as an increasing number of individuals found their place of peace and tranquility in his visions. In 2004, Jon founded Rattenbury Fine Arts, and he has been independently published since then. Between painting his inspirational works of art, you will find Jon creating another passion of his, writing music. In 2007, he released a New Age album entitled "Eternal Spirit." In his life, the beauty of art and music go hand in hand.
