" I like painting abstracts because it gives me the freedom to express my feelings without the restrictions of traditional methods it opens up a whole new world of colour, texture and form. Paintings for me are also a matter of design so the finished picture has a balance and structure which is not only pleasing to the viewer but also provocative and dramatic."

John has spent a lifetime exploring the use of oils

in producing abstracts which reflect his personal

interpretation of the landscape around him. 

 

He has a particular fascination with trees and

nature.  Much of his work reflects the East Anglian

landscape in which he lives, and he has recently

found inspiration in the coast, beach, and fishing

fleet in Hastings. 

Lately John has been using found objects as well

as paint to create  mixed media collages to

examine and express his personality - as he puts

it,

 

'impetuosity and impatience swirl underneath'.
