As a young man, John left his home in New Mexico and headed east to Boston, MA to attend a small art school, Vesper George School of Art. While there he was introduced to Robert Douglas Hunter, a prominent New England still life artist and studied under Hunter for 5 years. He also studied with a prominent portrait artist, Robert Cormier, until leaving Boston in 1978 and returning to New Mexico. The responsibility of raising 6 children forced him to put his artistic endeavors aside for many years. In 2005 he and his wife relocated to Tubac AZ to assist his mother, a long time resident and patron of the Arts. He has been able to resume his latent yearning to paint and has found Tubac to be most inspiring. In 2013 John received the Peoples Choice Award at Tubac Center for the Arts. He now practices his art in his studio/gallery located in the "old Town" section of Tubac at El Presidito.
