about the work
John's work is intuitive, responding to soundscape, memory and the environment at the moment of creation. Each stroke is made in response to the previous one, building up layers of meaning. The results are often figurative, resulting from his work in the life room and John's interest in early figurative painting.
John lives and work in Ilkley, running and teaching courses offered by Art School Ilkley. He completed his MA in Creative Practice in 2016.
