About The Artist

I am a sculptor, predominantly working in stone and metal, but I also paint and draw when the need arises. When working with stone I make figurative pieces, human or animal and I tend to let the stone lead the way. What I mean is I draw the inspiration from the particular lump of rock and in a sense release the image I can see within it.

Working with metal is very different, as I have a more deliberate and focused approach. It also lends itself well to making larger structures and allows me to develop more ambitious ideas for outdoor or garden sculptures.

I am known to almost everybody as Jericho because lots of people find my real name difficult to pronounce. As of 1st January 2006, I became a full-time artist. For the most part of my career I have been working mostly to commissions as well as working steadily to complete a body of work that I can show.

So, if you are thinking of commissioning a sculpture for a garden (or other outdoors or indoors space) please feel free to contact me to discuss any aspect of the process.

Chronology

I was born in Subotica (former Yugoslavia) in 1970 and started practising art there at an early age. It was only after I emigrated to Britain and after completing my art degree that I became a professional artist (BA Fine Art, First Class Honours Degree). I am also known as Jericho – a name given to me by my wife and now adopted as an alias.

My portfolio consists not only of sculptures and three dimensional works, but also paintings and drawings. I love working in stone and metal, but I've also worked with cold casting and wood. I have had a number of commissions for paintings and sculptures, both abstract and figurative, for corporate clients and individuals.

About The Artist

I'm a Pastel Landscape Artist based in Ashdown Forest (between East Grinstead and Uckfield) in East Sussex. I specialise in views of Ashdown Forest and the wider Sussex countryside and have been producing art and picture framing, for the last 20 years.

Despite my Yorkshire roots (and occasional Northern outbursts), I have now lived in Nutley in the picturesque Ashdown Forest for the last 27 years – still not quite a local!

Ashdown Forest has always been special to me and I strongly suspect I would not have been an artist at all if it wasn’t for the inspiring subject matter right on my doorstep. Even on the gloomiest of days, there is artistic treasure out there waiting to be discovered.

Art is a pursuit I never expected to follow. I had previously trained as a bilingual secretary and worked in the power, marine and construction industries.

It all began on a February day in 1991 with an impulse buy of equipment and stock from a retiring picture framer. In search of customers, I joined a local art class run by Royal Academy - trained tutor, Geoffrey Colbourne. I soon realised there was a market for my work…

The next few years saw the business developing. Customer numbers increased and links were formed with the National Trust at Standen where I staged solo exhibitions and tutored day workshops. My range of limited edition prints and cards grew and I invested in the equipment to produce my own giclee images. I became interested in both the conservation and tourism side of Ashdown Forest and its villages, working with Elite Hotels (Ashdown Park), High Weald AONB Unit and local tourist attractions.

I joined the Ashdown Forest Tourism Association (AFTA) and Tourism South East. Being filmed for ITV's "Tales from the Country" with Selina Scott was exciting and I have also appeared on various public information films. I am reliably informed that my work has found its way to all corners of the globe and at last count I have sold over five hundred original paintings and several thousand prints.

Juliet Murray - Sussex Artist
My business, Cogcraft in Nutley, is my usual centre of operations and every available space has been commandeered. My passion for conservation also runs into the arts and I buy and sell antique prints, often rescuing them from unstable framing and acid-laden backboards. Visitors are most welcome and there is generally a pastel on my easel, but a phone call is very much appreciated. Please contact me to arrange a viewing.

Cogcraft Concepts can be found at: Forest Bank Farm, Clockhouse Lane, Nutley, East Susex, TN22 3NZ
It's just off the A22 between Uckfield and East Grinstead, Ashdown Forest.
