John came to painting as an adult after a background in landscape garden design. Although he had always used drawing in his landscape design he never took any formal fine art training. By 1988 John realized that the ‘doodles’ of his imagination had taken over and he knew that the time had come to concentrate upon the development of his art.

We were greatly impressed by John’s work when we came upon some in 1990. Since that time our admiration has become even greater.
The development of his already mature style, coupled with this extraordinary talent has been fascinating for us and his keen collectors. He paints and draws naturally with his work imparting a quiet strength rather than wishing to startle or shock. John’s art crosses many frontiers for the thought behind it, touches many nationalities.

His work was awarded the 1994 Daler Prize at the Royal Watercolour Society.

One of his most recent themes has been the traditions and mysteries embodied by the Bride.

He lives and works in West Sussex.

Works in collections: U.S.A., Australia, Germany, Portugal, France & Great Britain.
