He had a very successful exhibition of watercolours  in Dublin and found a niche for painting house portraits in London .

Jon is self taught. He has made a precarious living  from his art all his life

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 a city which has inspired much  of his work   .Granada is one of the most beautiful cities in the world  .

He then developed the idea in Dublin and London where he received support from private clients .
