Johns life changed forever in 2001,a real sliding doors moment , he had not picked up a paint brush since primary school thats 36 years .
John made a comment to a great friend Rob Gunnell whilst they were riding on bikes, that would change his life forever.
That moment coincided with a trip to The Holy Island of Lindisfarne in the North Sea, John calls it his Little Corner of Heaven .
Dormant forces came alive and John was inspired by some great purpose to paint Holy Island and after 13 years of painting the island held 2 amazing exhibitions and was then able to open an Art Gallery on the island called Impressions of Holy Island , now he sells his paintings to collectors / buyers from all over the world.
Johns inspiration comes in many guises and amazing coincidences /spiritual experiences he calls it "playing with the angels " and believes in painting from the soul , Quote from John " My best paintings usually come without thought and my hands take over from my brain " and its usually the quicker i paint the better the painting .
