BIOGRAPHY

John had a desire to paint when he was 12 years old. At that time, he only had watercolors to work with and cheap paper. John had no reference material, only a Renoir poster his father purchased in Europe. John also had a Picasso print in a frame and one other print of a ship at sea. The ship painting fascinated him because it showed the texture of some thickly applied paint. That is the first impressions he had that led to a strong desire to paint..

John's love for painting and his love for nature merge as he constantly seeking to improve on his skills. John's love for the French Impressionists still show as he spent 20 years studying them in American and European museums. He still goes to France and paints there. He has a special love for the Early California Impressionists as well and still finds locations similar to what they have painted.

Fortunately he can still find open spaces with beautiful flowering hills. There is something special and timeless when he is outside painting a scene that reminds him of the 1900's. John also loves the great expanses of Montana and Idaho. He loves the colors of the West and often paints Western scenes that depict Native Americans. The Eastern Sierras are an artists dream. Anywhere there is an unspoiled natural environment, there is something for him to paint. It is John's passion to present to this world beautiful works of art in a timeless tradition.
