John is a Scottish artist, living and working in Glasgow. Being an artist is integral to John’s identity, "It’s about being able to be honest to yourself - my art is about who I am."
Inspired by the wild beauty of the west coast of Scotland and the Highlands, John works in a representational style to create serene landscapes and seascapes. He explores his local environment on hillwalking and kayaking trips from which he takes notes to bring back to the studio. Using a palette knife, he captures the unique ruggedness of the place and equally the remoteness of these beautiful locations.
