Jonathan Greenyer established this art group in November 2016 to meet a demand amongst local abstract and experimentalist artists (in the Windsor, Bracknell area) for a forum, a network, a way of meeting other like minded people. Jonathan Greenyer re-newed his painting interest in 2003 and is completely self taught. Jonathan is driven by the need to explore new creative ideas, approaches & techniques, generally with a degree of whimsy! Maybe I dont spend long enough on any creative approach but life is too short and there's so much I want to do....
