After a strong graduation in 2012, John spent a number of years searching for a career path in the industrial world only to returned to what he loved the most... working with his hands. Joining forces with a very old and dear friend, John decided to spend time in the trades while focusing on building a new path around Fine and Decorative art. Doors opened.
Old friendships once again emerged & John was invited to join the team at Cascadia Music and Arts Festival in 2016. Coming on as a production assistant for the first two years, he then moved into the lead role of Production Manager, further entering the creative world. Here inspiration overflowed from fellow artists and musicians and did a great deal to re-ignite the passion that was about to come.
As a youth, art was a strong part of John's life, but Art for art's sake had been lost when he entered the University at 28. Twelve years would pass before he would seriously try his hand at painting once again and in Aug 2018, John decided to cut & stretch his first canvas in many, many years. 8 new pieces were born in the 18 months that followed, starting a strong and clear trend... John participated in his first art gallery in the Sum of 2019 with plans to continue to seek further opportunities and increasing the flow of art and inspiration.
