He had a major exhibition in Dublin in 1989 of watercolours painted in Granada ,Spain.

Jon has lived exclusively -from his art all his life in Ireland , France , Spain and  more recently in London where he has found some recognition and success with the originals of his maps fetching some high prices .{ see ORIGINALS FOR SALE BELOW ].

He has been commissioned by Oxford and Cambridge Universities and in 2010 received a commission from the then Prime-Minister to make a Portrait of 10 Downing Street .

Jonathan Addis  made his first ever map in Granada , Spain which he funded by subscription  .He then developed the idea in London where he received support from a banker acquaintance.

Jon speaks  Spanish , French and English . He has a lifetime of experience fulfilling commissions especially portraits of houses {see “building portraits”}
