John was born in Romford, Essex but moved to Cornwall in 1979.
John has drawn and painted enthusiastically from an early age and his creativity eventually led him to pursue a career in architecture and interior design. John worked with architects in Essex, London and Cornwall specialising in artist’s impressions and presentation drawings.
Some time after John moved to Cornwall he took up art professionally in the mid 1990’s.
He originally painted mainly in watercolour and exhibited and sold paintings at galleries in St. Ives and Coverack, his inspiration, always Cornwall.
Currently, John is working with acrylic paint. The unique scenery and atmosphere of Cornwall is a constant source of inspiration for him.
