John works with intaglio printmaking and sculpture at his studio in Toft, Cambridge. His original art works are widely exhibited within a network of galleries throughout the UK and are now becoming popular in NYC. John is currently exploring themes surrounding animal motion and is developing a range of interior furnishing products based on his artwork.
John studied drawing at the Wimbledon School of Art and then went on to pursue a BA in product design at Kingston University, a field in which he subsequently worked for more than a decade. He moved from London to Cambridge in 2005 and this relocation and change of pace of life heralded a return to his creative roots and to his first true passion: that of drawing and sculpture.
