Born in Seattle in 1958 John grew to find the environment of the Pacific Northwest to be a source of inspiration to his burgeoning creative endeavors. For John, art has always been a natural way to express a deep emotional tie to the area and its intricate web of life. Referencing the physical and life sciences, his work strives to reflect the interconnectedness of a complex ecology while conveying a sense of the beauty and mystery inherent in the unfolding process of life.

John received a B.A. in Art from the University of Washington and an A.A. degree in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Seattle. He has shown his work in numerous solo and group shows throughout the U.S. and is represented by galleries across the country.
