John is a wholly self-taught artist and his work reflects many influences, from traditional artists such as Walter Sickert and John Singer Sargent to cutting edge contemporary artists such as Alex Kanevsky. He has developed these influences and experimented to reach a style that is clearly his own. He paints mainly in acrylics, achieving the vibrant effects that ideally suit his flamboyant style of painting and bravura brushwork. His constant enthusiasm for his art means that it is continually developing and evolving.
John had a studio at St Michael's Studios from 2006 to 2013. He now lives and works in east Cornwall.
