John lives and paints in the beautiful Cornish resort of St Ives, which is famed for the brilliance of its light and Artistic community.
Born in Hammersmith London. He was always drawing as a child. He started painting in oils at the age of sixteen, then spent many years trying to master colour mixing and different techniques, for a wide range of subject matter, going from figure work to trains, still life to seascapes. John is totally self taught.
In 1976 at the age of twenty six, John moved to Cornwall to pursue his art in the hope that he would become a professional artist; it was the right move as his subsequent success has proved.
John has done exhibitions at the N.E.C. Birmingham, Olympia London and the exhibition centre Glasgow. He has also had his paintings used as a cover for a diving magazine and a book and he has been featured in several newspapers and magazines. John paints mainly in oils but also occasionally uses Acrylic. Over the years he has sold many paintings which have gone to many parts of the world.
John loves his work and the beautiful landscape, coastline and magnificent sunsets of Cornwall will always inspire him to paint.
