John devoted approximately 31 years in the advertising industry primarily as a Creative Director. He is now entirely dedicated to his artwork and his primary medium is watercolor. John is a self -taught artist with watercolors traversing between realism and impressionism. John relocated to Las Cruces in 2012 to begin his journey in the world of fine art, subsequently becoming a permanent artist in several Galleries in Las Cruces and El Paso.
In 2013, John relocated, with his now wife, Ali, to Tubac, AZ and opened a Gallery and Custom Frame Shop. Owning the gallery was a prosperous and an extremely rewarding accomplishment. After 5 years they relocated back to Las Cruces to slow down the hectic pace of owning a business to concentrate mainly on their own artwork. Today, there is no greater reward for John than to see the emotional expressions on a viewers’s face when they connect with one of his paintings. “Concept and color are subjective; what the viewer feels is priceless.”
