Jason Walker, UK by birth, first began drawing at the age of 4 in his hometown of Nairn, Scotland. Encouraged to draw and paint by his mother, he worked and studied visual arts with great determination throughout his childhood, graduating from high school with the Highlands MacHardy Arts Award, then moving onto Aberdeen College where he graduated with highest honours.
Mr. Walker moved to Canada in 1990, where he set up studio as a professional portrait painter. Since that time he has painted the portraits of various celebrities and individuals including the portrait of Wayne Gretzky for his induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame and won an American Society of Portrait Artist's award in 1998. Along with ongoing commissions, Mr. Walker paints extensively from his own interests and his paintings are now being collected internationally. In addition to his portraiture, Mr. Walker is also a designer, animator and digital compositor: his work for national television has garnered three North American Broadcast Design Awards.
