Born in Leeds in 1954, John has worked all his life within the Arts. John taught Art and Drama for many years before writing plays and touring with his own company, Compact Theatre.
There was a period of time when John was acting, writing and painting, but he has painted full time since 2010 from his studio in Derbyshire.
John works mainly in Acrylics, preferring to paint 'alive' and feels the real energy of the places he paints.
John's work has been purchased by collectors in the UK, France, Belgium, Spain, Sweden, Austria, America, Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East.
