Artist BiographyRaised in the small community of Port Perry, Ontario, Clinton Jammer is a self-taught nature artist whose wildlife and landscape paintings are often mistaken as photographs due to their high level of realistic details. He moved to Muskoka in November 2018, where he paints from his home studio gallery.
Jammer began drawing in pen and ink when he was just a young boy, etching what was most certainly the beginnings of future paintings into the pages of his school notebooks. In his late 20’s, he began to approach painting seriously. He’s been an avid supporter of nature and wildlife conservation throughout his 30-year art career, helping to raise tens of thousands of dollars for various organizations and causes through donated paintings and sponsored print sales.
Each painting Jammer creates reflects the strong influence nature has always had on his life. Fishing, canoeing, portaging and back country camping have been his hobbies (and passions) since he was a child, with each excursion leaving fond and powerful memories etched into his soul.
Jammer’s wildlife and landscape paintings have been displayed internationally at many prestigious exhibitions, including the Society of Animal Artists Annual Exhibition, the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Exhibition, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, the Artists for Conservation Annual Art Festival, and the McMichael Autumn Art Show.
When Jammer isn’t in his studio painting, you can find him hiking the local countryside or travelling the globe, personally observing some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes and most amazing creatures in their natural habitat.
