Jarrod Riggs' Gallery

Jarrod Riggs

Jarrod has been painting as a recreational artist for as long as he can remember, these days he works out of his studio as a full time professional. Born in New Zealand and growing up surrounded by such a remarkably beautiful environment came a deep desire to capture it - "the landscape there can be breathtaking at times so the fire was lit from an early age". He spent time in Europe before moving to Australia in 2009 finally settling on the Sunshine Coast to continue his career.

Naturally drawn towards visually striking landscapes it hasn’t always been grand sweeping vistas that provide his inspiration, often it's the simple interplay between light and the landscape that makes a great picture. “My paintings are designed to feel very personal - I paint in a realist style because I want to convey a convincing sense of reality which hopefully allows the viewer a more immersive experience, I feel that great art draws you in”.

His process has evolved gradually over the years with many of his applications coming from his time in Europe studying works from traditional oil painters and the techniques they employed. “I am still as much a student of art as I am a working artist - I love to paint and I'm constantly looking to pick up on new knowledge”

With many hours of preparation and studio time going into each artwork, his paintings often evolve from an outdoor study to a series of studio sketches before being transferred to canvas. “I’m not looking for a faithful copy from a photo - I prefer to make adjustments to a composition to find the right balance and sense of harmony within a scene”

Jarrod has worked on commissions and has exhibited his work in the past but prefers now to sell his original paintings from his studio on the Sunshine Coast.
