About John

 

After attending Eastbourne art school and Croydon college of art in my youth, although I continued drawing and painting, my main emphasis became music and I strove to become a successful singer-songwriter. When I moved to North Wales in 1991 I began carving. And when I moved to Spain in 2003 I discovered olive wood and began to create a body of work. I work on my sculptures intuitively and my main influence is nature. Since moving to Cornwall in April 2014 I have begun to collect local woods for future works. And since last December, during lock down I began a series of drawings based on dancing figures.After this beginning to my artistic career, although I continued drawing and painting, my main emphasis became music and I strove to become a successful singer-songwriter.
