Jonathan Clay has become one of the best known transport artists in the UK. He has produced over 1100 paintings and drawings, of which over 730 are of his well-known and widely-acclaimed ‘Locomotive Portraits’. His pictures now hang on homes, railway buildings, and museums all over the world. In the 1950s and 1960s, he was an enthusiastic train- and bus-spotter, and began to draw and paint seriously. In the mid 1970s he held exhibitions of his work in Lancashire, and even had a display of motor racing paintings on show at the Donington Park Racing car museum, in 1979.
