Mother and views of her son by Jan Szymczuk

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This is an early sketch I was commissioned to do of a friend’s wife and diferrent views of their child from birth to his early years…



I`m really a self taught artist. A Geordie lad, hailing from a small mining village called Pegswood in Northumberland, originally, from Polish parents. I now live in Stannington, Northumberland, where I’m enjoying all that retirement has to offer.

I am available for commissions, including portraiture, animals and also for one off caricatures, for hire to wedding receptions, parties, local schools, fun fairs and fetes etc.
