Born in 1972 in Broughty Ferry, John studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art (1989-93) and now lives in rural Perthshire.
His work is widely collected and he is regarded as one of Scotland’s most distinctive and talented contemporary landscape painters.
Inspired by the American Realist Andrew Wyeth, John’s technique marries traditional and contemporary styles, contrasting finely detailed observation against simplified backdrops. This approach creates a stillness within his works, and brings focus to the central subject. ” I see these paintings as portraits, each bringing attention to the glorious isolation of the locations and highlighting the beauty that lies within the textures and age of a building or object.”
John has been exhibiting for over twenty years and has held several highly successful exhibitions with prominent galleries throughout the UK. His work can be found in collections worldwide.
