ABOUT THE ART
After ten years in the Pharmaceutical industry John felt a longing to re-connect with his childhood passion. In 2001 he made a drastic career change and started a mural business, which ultimately evolved into his unique body of work?oil paintings on canvas. The subjects he is drawn to are natural and peaceful, mostly inspired by the idyllic countryside surrounding his studio in Phoenixville, PA. His artistic influences range from early-20th century American Impressionists to contemporary plein- air.
