A devoted student of the plein air approach to painting landscape, John takes his paints and canvas panels into the field to produce small oil studies, which are later used in the studio to complete his larger compositions.

A solid and traditional education in the key elements of painting - value, color, edges, and drawing - coupled with extensive training in composition as a professional illustrator, have given John's work a signature style that is quickly gaining him recognition among his peers and collectors alike.

So we invite you to take a moment, relax, and indulge in the light and color of nature as seen through the eyes of an artist whose love for the natural world lives deep within his spirit, his culture, and his very soul.

"Out of the Indian approach to life there came a great freedom - an intense and absorbing love for Nature; a respect for Life; (and an) enriching faith in a Supreme Power...."

- Luther Standing Bear, Oglala Sioux
