John grew up on England’s east coast and, after studying Architecture at Brighton University, worked for many years with exhibition design, interiors and illustration.
Painting and drawing had always been of great interest but it wasn't until 2002 and moving to Sweden with his young family that John began painting and exhibiting more actively.
In his paintings, he explores landscape and seascape through its patterns and textures, attempting to trigger a memory or a sense of place and ignoring conventional rules of perspective along the way. In his still-life studies, John tries to tease something extraordinary out of his everyday surroundings.
John has taken part in many one-man and group exhibitions in Sweden and more recently his art has been drawing attention further afield with gallery representation in England and the U.S.
