John painted pictures all through his school years but it was in the early 1970s before he began to look on art with more interest. By then John was married with two children and living in Shropshire.
John's first exhibitions were with the local art group in Wem. That then progressed into having paintings entered into exhibitions in Shrewsbury with the Shropshire Art Society. One thing followed another and before he knew it he was holding exhibitions in various parts of the country.
Various art galleries throughout England and Wales promoted John's work and to them he will remain forever thankful.
By the late 1970s John was painting for a living and also teaching watercolour painting for evening classes held by the Shropshire Adult Education Service. This led to him giving painting demonstrations for various groups including the Women's Institute. It is his love of watercolour as a medium that drives him on.
During the 1980s John was painting two or three pictures a week, he painted every day and enjoyed every minute. Unfortunately he began to suffer ill health in the late 1980s and because of this he found painting to be quite difficult.
He now looks on the Internet as a means for him to share his work with the public, I thank you for your time.
My name is Sue Wood and John is my husband, due to John's failing health I manage his website and any enquires can be addressed to me.
