John’s early training was completed at the Swain School of Design in New Bedford, Massachusetts and at Southeastern Massachusetts University. He spent many years working as a freelance illustrator for advertising agencies, publishing companies and corporations. John works in a traditional style of painting, but is unconventional in the use and type of surface materials he uses. This merge of the two medias form a synergy of unique visual appeal. His current body of work utilizes his style to create fascinating pieces reminiscent of his past artistic influences. These pieces…tributes to artist whose works he grew up with, made a large impression on how he views his emotional and creative links to the past.  John currently enjoys living and working in the old Spanish town of St. Augustine, Florida.
