John is an English Artist, born in Fleetwood, Lancashire, England. He now lives in Lexington, Kentucky U.S.A. having moved from England in 2016 to marry his Fiancé. It took a while for John and his wife Pam to find and set up a suitable home that had sufficient space for a good size studio and gallery. This was hampered by a serious illness, of which he is now fully recovered. 

His home studio and gallery affords excellent lighting to not only paint and exhibit his work, but also to teach raw beginners to draw and paint.

At school, he always enjoyed drawing, painting and Technical Drawing. Due to the intense requirements of Engineering studies, he was unable to pursue his art.

John took up painting again whilst he was serving in the Royal Air Force after being inspired by a good friend. It wasn’t until John became seriously interested in the early 1990’s when he joined a Painting Group and the excellent tutorship of Professional Artist Lesley Stew.

At first John concentrated on oil painting, but also enjoyed watercolors. It wasn’t until some years later he discovered the pure joy of working in pastels. This particularly medium fitted in with his style of painting at the time, and for many years afterwards.

It is painting in acrylics and the Abstract form that John really excelled in producing paintings that epitomize freedom of self-expression, by creating highly imaginative and vivid works. John uses a combination of techniques to produce the colorful and vivid patterns portrayed in this unique style.

John revels in new challenges, and loves the idea of experimenting with new styles and techniques which reflects very much in the work he produces.
