The watercolour artist,  Jeremy Taylor, was born in Shipley, 1957. He moved to Norfolk in 1975 and studied Philosophy at the University of East Anglia. In Norfolk, he was attracted to the Norwich School of painters, and in particular the watercolours of Edward Seago.

After graduating in 1978, he travelled to Europe and to Africa in pursuit of his interest in natural history.  In the mid 1980s he returned to the Shipley area, where he now resides. Despite no formal art qualifications, in 1986 Jeremy began to paint professionally and successfully, drawing on his natural talent for art and interest in landscape and nature. He also paints still life, nude, and nostalgia scenes.

He teaches watercolour art part-time locally (see the ‘Telegraph & Argus’ article at T&A ) and his work has been commissioned by greeting card companies and is sold online by a number of galleries, including Union Art.
