  • JOHN has only joined the gallery a few months ago.  Having worked, over the years, in a number of occupations ranging from cartographer to regeneration projects, promoting creative industries, biodiversity and countryside access, John succeeded in retaining throughout his career a connection with his long love of the arts and geography.  During this time, John also continued to develop his painting skills, occasionally exhibiting his work in art shows and local galleries, and studying with the Open College of Art and at the Weobley Art Centre In Herefordshire. Having stopped work early, and now free of all professional obligations, John has returned to his love of landscape and painting. His current medium is watercolour and his subject matter ranges from the landscape of the Scottish Borders to the Northumberland coastline.

What we like about John is his a natural ability to “suggest” rather than overstate, to express the essential, and to convey light beautifully.

  • A page will be created for John on our website in the first half of June.
