In 1998, six months spent teaching in Tanzania at a Catholic Seminary on the foothills of Mt. Meru was to be the single most influential force in developing Jon's style of figure and landscape painting. During this time he spent long periods exploring the surrounding hills, drawing, taking photos and visiting Maasai settlements. In 2006 Jon returned to the country to find it had lost none of the magic which had captivated his imagination seven years earlier.
