Jarome is a contemporary Irish artist living in Norfolk and specialising in using multi-medium art and painting techniques. His work is inspired by the beauty of the countryside of both Ireland, especially the west coast where he spent much of his childhood, and the Norfolk coast where he now lives.
In his work, Jarome combines various unexpected materials, everything from oil paints, artists resin, ink, and luminous power paint, onto fragments of industrial and monastic glass, forgotten pieces of textile, and found objects from the coastline thrown up by the tides.
The heavily textured paintings are often drawn from memories and experiences through his colourful life, from training as a concert pianist, after which he studied for a degree in the history of religious art, to time spent as a priest, followed by life as an actor and director with international companies throughout the world. His journey has always centred on the expressive art and a paint brush was never far from his reach.
