About the Artist: Jon Rattenbury
Artist, visionary, innovator, and musician are just a few words that help describe Jon Rattenbury. An artist of international stature, Rattenbury is probably best known for his attention to detail, his use of vibrant colors and light, and his portrayal of nature’s awe-inspiring beauty. Through his work, we are able to experience a dreamlike vision of the natural world around us.
Born in Cheltenham, England in 1966, Rattenbury’s family immigrated to America when he was just 3 years old settling in Northern California. Though completely self-taught as an artist, it was the splendor of the natural world around him that inspired him to start drawing at an early age.
Rattenbury’s work has been displayed and sold at shows and galleries across the United States and internationally. He has experienced enduring success in Japan where his work continues to grow in popularity. He has a growing list of licensees that use his images for numerous different products including jigsaw puzzles, cross stitch patterns, wall murals, mosaic tile, decorative containers, flags, screen savers, 3D products, calendars and cards to name a few.
Jon currently resides in Northern California with his wife, Jeanni, and their children Zackary and Bailey. When not in his studio he enjoys spending time with family and friends, and, of course, taking in the great outdoors.
