Born in Hull in 1960 and now lives in Yorkshire. John had no formal art training and worked both as a gardener and on a Piling Rig.
He started to paint professionally in 1980, first as a portrait artist and then his interest turned to natural history and led him to paint animals and birds.
He now works exclusively in pastel – a medium he finds most compatible with his subject matter.
