John’s study of painting and ceramics at Cardiff College of Art led to a long career in art education, where he taught in his Welsh homeland, in Malawi and in England.
Spring 1986 saw John embark as a full time artist, since when he has regularly and successfully exhibited in several UK galleries, South Africa, Australia and the United Arab Emirates.
Essentially a landscape painter, John has an abiding interest in subtle light, reflection and the transitory aspects of weather conditions. Living in Inkberrow, he enjoys the muted tones of the Worcestershire landscape, also frequently seeking inspiration in Wales beside the Rivers Wye and the Usk. Wintertime though, sees John adjusting his palette to the sun bleached vistas of Africa and the Middle East, where the unique atmosphere of desert, wadi, mountains and coastlines provide a refreshing change of scene.
