Born in York in 1950, Jake Attree attended York Art School in the late 1960s, before going on to Liverpool College of Art and later the Royal Academy Schools. In 1987, he and his wife, Lindsay, returned to Yorkshire, and now live in Saltaire. He has a studio at Dean Clough, Halifax and exhibits regularly both nationally and internationally. His work is held by numerous private and public collections in Britain and abroad.

Attree’s interests have been exclusively with drawing and painting; he has consistently looked at a range of painters who would popularly be termed “painterly”, such as Constable, Cezanne and Rembrandt. Constable was certainly not regarded as a painter with anything to teach a young artist in the late 1960s. Attree felt a direct affinity between these artists’ work and his belief in the possibility of making authentic figurative paintings, whose origins lie in an attempt to understand the visible, external world through drawing.

He is represented internationally by Messums, London.
