Raised in Canada but educated in Los Angeles California at Art Centre College of Design where he received a BFA before he commenced a thirty-year journey in advertising. Fifteen years ago he resumed his passion for painting. John has exhibited in more than 15 group showings and exhibitions as well as numerous solo shows. He has won many honours for his works.
John’s paintings reflect a simplicity through design and colour that adds calmness to life. Traveling by motorcycle has enabled him to enjoy the beauty of a blooming hillside, nameless waterfalls or the discovery of a little-known lake. These are small moments in our lives, we remember not the times, not all the details, but the moments.
With the busy times we live in, his paintings lend a little serenity to the hectic pace of today’s world. “Happy.” “Content.” “Comfortable.” “At ease.” “Calming.” These are some of the words used to describe John’s work. John’s paintings have found new homes in private collections and offices across North America and Europe.
