John is a versatile artist who enjoys working on a variety of subject matter and with different media. His work currently falls into two areas: a traditional approach to landscapes, portraits, etc. and, secondly, a colourful and decorative style of semi-abstract painting that he has termed, ‘Colour and Motion’.
John grew up in a creative household, both his parents being practising Artists and Art teachers. Whilst his parents provided much artistic tuition for him, his formal Art training included courses at Exeter Art College, Falmouth Art College, Winchester Art School and the Slade.
After gaining a degree at University, John worked as a Museum Curator, Science teacher and Head of Art. John now works as a full-time Artist.
