ABOUT JAMIE

Elected in 2022 Jamie Routley is our newest Member.

He was born in Newport, South Wales in 1982 and educated entirely in the Welsh language at Ysgol Gyfun Gwynllyw.  Having completed his Ba in Illustration at Swindon College, he  studied under the American painter Charles H. Cecil in Florence, Italy (2004 – 2008)

Following a short period in Sweden and Wales, Jamie moved to London in 2009, where he still lives with his wife and two young daughters.

​His work has been exhibited in numerous group exhibitions including those of the National Portrait Gallery, The BP Portrait Award, The Royal Society of Portrait Painters, Figurativas (MEAM Barcelona), The Columbia Threadneedle Prize and The Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize.

Awards include The National Portrait Gallery’s BP Young Artist Award and The De Lazlo Foundation Award for excellence from The Royal Society of Portrait Painters.

In 2019, The Ruth Borchard Collection, the UK’s only public collection of self portraits, purchased a self portrait for their collection.
