About

John is an energetic outdoor painter who works almost exclusively in oils and is stimulated by the strong light of the Australian landscape.

His work stems from direct observation during “en plein air” painting trips throughout the Blue Mountains and the Hawkesbury near his home and the Central West of NSW where he has spent a great deal of time. He has travelled to other inspiring locations on the NSW coast from Port Macquarie to Narooma, to Tasmania, Victoria and the splendid Flinders Ranges of South Australia.

John has won many awards for his artworks and has held thirteen very successful solo exhibitions and numerous joint exhibitions. He has works in private collections throughout Australia and abroad and he is an exhibiting member of the Royal Art Society of NSW.

John has almost forty years teaching experience. He is called upon by art societies in Sydney and country areas to provide workshops and demonstrations and to judge their exhibitions.
