Jonathan Moss

Biography

Preston-born Jonathan spent his teens travelling in France and Spain before settling in Australia in 1989. He eventually returned to the UK, living in London for a spell before returning to Lancashire. In 1993, he started a BA (Hons) in Visual Art and Culture, which he completed three years later in 1996.

In 1997, Jonathan began teaching life drawing and printmaking at Blackburn College. A year later he was approached by Blackpool and The Fylde College to take up the role of Learning Support Tutor for Art and Design, which he did. He started teaching further and higher education in 2006.

In 2009, Jonathan began studying for an MA in Studio Practice at UCLan. He now runs a studio in Preston and has been involved in several exhibitions throughout Europe and the US.
