Date of Birth: 1947
A full-time watercolour artist who is a full member of the British Watercolour Society, Associate of the Yorkshire Artists Society and Fellow of the International Guild of Artists. His early career as an artist design engraver was a firm foundation to train his "eye" for shapes and forms and was to be of great value for his freehand painting which was to follow. In his free time he painted the landscapes of Derbyshire and Yorkshire, specialising in watercolours and also oil and acrylic. His superb attention to detail not only records the scene accurately, but also captures the light, atmosphere and peacefulness of the landscape. Recognition and ever increasing demand for his work allowed John to become a full-time artist and make art his way of life. He still finds inspiration from the landscapes and scenery of Yorkshire and is always looking for new aspects, to expand his ever-growing portfolio. Original watercolours and limited editions of John's work are represented in private collections throughout the world. His watercolours are often exhibited at Wentworth Garden Centre in Rotherham.
