Born Glasgow 1948, and studied At Glasgow School of Art 1967-72. John paints mainly in Scotland particularly Argyll and the Western Isles.
His powerful and direct style captures the remoteness of his subjects, and their exposure to the elements, with stark pure colour laid on in vivid layers of heavy impasto.
John’s vigorous renditions of island landscapes, crofts and mountainscapes have received international acclaim, and he has exhibited constantly for over thirty years throughout the U.K and also Europe, USA, Australia and the Far East.
He has been the subject of book and BBC film, and in 2008 received Honorary Doctorates from the University of West of Scotland and Abertay Dundee University.
