Justine Pateman (JakeArt1)
Justine is a self-taught artist working around her family commitments (3 teenagers, a dog, 2 tortoises, 2 rabbits and a husband) at home in Christchurch.
‘I have always loved to draw ever since I was a young girl. The addiction to relentlessly draw and paint resurfaced when our children were babies. I bought my first set of acrylic paints to complete the mural on my daughter's bedroom wall when she was little. Pretty soon all our 3 children had murals, as does the outside of our house!
In 2013 while recuperating from chemo, I bought myself a set of watercolours and launched JakeArt1. I've been selling my paintings and drawings worldwide ever since.
I feel extremely fortunate to have been commissioned to create many varied artworks including; portraits, pet portraits, fantasy art, wildlife art and book covers. Left to my own devices I love painting wildlife and fantasy/steampunk pictures.
Painting makes me happy and I like to paint things that make other people happy.
I accept a wide variety of commissions as I love bringing someone else’s vision to life.’
