It is only relatively recently that he has recognised his true vocation ‘painting’ and the results are captivating. John paints predominately the birds that frequent his beloved Avon Estuary from Swans and Cygnets to Egrets. Painting mainly in oils John has a truly mesmerising ability of transporting the viewer to the banks of the river, to enjoy the tranquillity of the sea breezes and the simple beauty of the wildlife the estuary supports.
