John began drawing and painting at a young age, winning a local illustration contest in sixth grade. His passion for creating art led him to enroll in art courses throughout high school and college. Beckoned by the call for adventure, John left his home state of Colorado when he was 21 to pursue adventures in the Last Frontier. He landed in Anchorage and has stayed since. While continuing to paint and draw, he attended aviation mechanic school and obtained certification as an airframe and powerplant mechanic. He continued to work in the aviation industry for the next 40 years, raising and providing for a family of six children.


Now, with all of the children out of the house and more time to explore his interests, John has returned his attention back to his artistic roots. As an artist, John works in painting, drawing, sculpture and ceramics.
