Since Jonathon Marc Mendes became Annie Sloan’s most popular Painter in Residence early in 2017, his paintbrush hasn’t touched the ground!
His furniture painting is widely acknowledged as ‘extraordinary’, a master of so many different styles and genres, constantly delighting and surprising his audience with his sheer creativity and originality. His eye for colour, bespoke paint mixes and quick and easy ‘furniture painting hacks’ have seen him develop a huge social media following around the world, where Facebook and Instagram followers have become friends, all hungry for his next project.
Jonathon’s boundless passion for inspiring others and for working paint in new, unique ways ensures he is in great demand worldwide to generously share his original techniques as well as hosting masterclasses and workshops for interior designers, professional painters, paint stockists and those who just love to paint.
Jonathon has delivered workshops in Greece, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland. In February 2018 he made his first long haul trip to South Africa hosting workshops at Home Expo and delivering workshops in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban plus events with stockists in the UK.
He ended a super busy 2018 by hosting a weekend of sell out workshops at the first Makers & Artists Market in Melbourne, Australia, also attended by Annie Sloan. He shared his passion for upcycling by hosting a Masterclass at the Rediscovery Centre in Dublin, Ireland in 2018 and has showcased his upcycling skills at Grand Designs Live in London in May 2019.
In May 2019 Jonathon visited the Netherlands to teach stockists at Annie Sloan Europe HQ.
In June 2019 Jonathon hosted a series of workshops in Germany with Simply Vintage and will end the month returning to Ireland, this time Limerick, to host 2 further workshops bookable with Twenty Six .
