John was born in London in 1934. At school, John studied Science to advanced level but a wonderful art teacher introduced him to painting and wood engraving. Choosing between art and science was a dilemma, but he decided to study mechanical engineering at King's College, London.
John is largely self taught and attaches great importance to developing artistic skills by the rigid discipline of drawing and painting directly from the subject. In 2010, he was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE) based at the Bankside Gallery, London.
John regularly submits works to the Society of Wood Engravers for their annual show. This touring exhibition comes to Kevis House Gallery as one of the stops on it's tour.
