John studied Fine Art at Leeds College of Art before training as a Drama teacher. Since graduating in 1976, John has enjoyed an illustrious career in ‘the arts’ dividing his time between acting, writing and painting. John describes himself as a ‘Derbyshire based, Cornish artist’ – an expression of frustration at being a landlocked artist, whose first love is to paint the sea.

John works mainly in acrylics and mixed media utilising a variety of found materials. Beach sand may be used to create an interesting texture in a landscape or to represent itself in a seascape. Dried grass, twigs, leaves and ferns have been known to appear (as themselves) in John’s landscape paintings.
