John began sketching and painting at a very early age. As a young man, he traveled to Europe to study the classical masters of the Renaissance in Italy and France. After graduating from Seminary College in California, he attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. His career then merged into advertising, illustration, and eventually fine art when he moved to the Hawaiian Islands. In Hawaii, John started the Epic Mural Company and completed over 500 murals for corporate clients worldwide. He now resides in the Southern California forest and continues to create from his imagination with the genre of Fantasy Art as a particular favorite. John’s art has been published on over 500 products worldwide.
