Artist's Biography

John has been a highly sought after plein air painter of the West since the early 1980’s. John and his wife Teresa have lived in Salt Lake City, Utah since 1991, and he maintains a studio in Taylorsville. He teaches private plein air workshops each summer, and an oil painting class at Salt Lake Community College. This year he taught a 3 day summer workshop for the Scottsdale Artist School in the beautiful surroundings of Grand Teton National Park. He is a highly sought out instructor and painting demonstrator with a national following.


“I think it is sometimes more effective to say a lot with less than to diminish a work with more and more things; painters often find that less is more in that sense”.

“The landscape has always held a particular fascination for me, but I paint and consider all subjects worthy of my artistic attention.”

“Capturing the effect of light in a painting does more to convey a sense of reality than all the detail an artist can heap on a canvas.”

“In painting, the literal gives meaning to the abstract but, the abstract gives beauty to the literal; combined, the two transcend what could not be accomplished alone.”
