John was born in Cornwall in 1964 and over his 25 year career he has established himself as one of the UK's leading land and seascape artist. He works in his preferred medium of oil paint, using both a palette knife and brush to create the richly textured style of painting that he is known for.John takes inspiration from the natural beauty of the British Isles, working in Cornwall and as far north as Scotland. Typically painting ‘en plein air' he has developed palette of natural colours that express the ever changing and temperate atmosphere of the British Isles, instantly transporting viewers to the untouched, sometimes isolated places around our beautiful coastline.
