About Jonathan Wilkinson

We Live Here’s art prints and products celebrate the buildings and scenes that define where we live. All the artwork is created by We Live Here founder, Jonathan Wilkinson. His scenes of urban landscapes and architectural landmarks have been the mainstay of his work for the last 18 years. A painter and illustrator, Jonathan was born in Leeds, grew up in Nottingham and now lives in Sheffield.


Jonathan graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2001 with a degree in Painting and Printmaking and started off his career in graphic design. Inspired by the brutalist surroundings of Sheffield’s urban landscape and the looming destruction of the Tinsley Towers, he launched an online store for his own art, ‘We Live Here’, in 2007. Jonathan’s pared-back and architectural style quickly gained him a local following which stretches far beyond Sheffield.
