John has loved making art and experimenting with different media since early childhood. His curiosity led him to teach himself to screen print in the garage at home while using the larder to develop and print photographs
With enjoying different processes, this Do-It–Yourself approach continues to the present day. Despite John’s interest in printmaking, his work is led by ideas rather than process, in particular the human relationship with nature.
A childhood spent playing and rooting about in his grandparent’s large Kent garden left a lasting impression and remains the source of many ideas and work.
He has work in many private and public collections. Public collections include, Victoria & Albert Museum, Tate Library, British Library, Museum of Modern Art New York and the Yale Center for British Art.
