John is a largely self-taught artist and is a previous recipient of the ‘Swarovski/Birdwatch Bird Artist of the Year’ award. He is a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists (SWLA) and the Artists for Nature Foundation, and has written and illustrated two books.
His home county of Dumfries and Galloway serves as the backdrop for much of the artwork in his upcoming exhibition of works at Waterston House. Others pieces feature the familiar landscape of the East Lothian coast, captured whilst tutoring on the late John Busby’s Seabird Drawing Course. Additionally, some of the work includes images painted whilst in Hungary and more recently, in Zambia.
