John is a member of a number of art societies with whom he exhibits including; the Fosseway Artists, Lansdown and South Cotswold Art Societies. However his main outlet is his own annual exhibition held in his studio and cottage in November / December. Over the last 8 years this has been in aid of Cancer Research and has to date raised more than £8000 for this important charity. Apart from this John participates in the Stroud Valleys Open Studios in June.


For the last 10 years or more John has run painting courses for both beginners and improvers locally and outdoor summer painting evenings. In addition he also runs 3 to 5 day residential painting holidays in the Cotswolds, Cornwall and Brittany.

"I do most of my painting “en plein air” on the spot and like the immediacy of painting outdoors. Most people see me as quite a loose and direct painter and this is often why people come to me.”

John tends to work with small groups of 4/8 participants, allowing him to give more personal attention. It also means that everyone can get to know each other better and can offer mutual support.
