Waterfront Artists being exhibited 2012
Born in England in 1932, John was inspired by many artists in London in the early 1950’s. He was particularly enthused by Ivan Hitchens, the English, abstract landscape painter to the point where he was compelled to experiment with paint and bits of bric on board and canvas himself. John and his family moved to Barbados in 1962, he spent the next thirty years immersed in island life and managing his business and family commitments and it was not until 1995, that John was finally able to dedicate time to his artistic work. He was encouraged by local artist Indrani Whittingham and Fielding Babb, along with art historian Therese Hadchity that he finally began producing his own work. John produces quite a variety of island scenes, works using a palette knife and reproduces his prints on canvas
