John Arthur

JOHN ARTHUR WILLIAMS, under the pen name of "John Arthur" began drawing and painting in his father's art studio as a child and has not stopped since. He began his career as a professional artist and illustrator more than twenty-five years ago and his paintings have graced the covers of books, magazines, and periodicals and have been viewed worldwide. His limited edition prints and portfolios have sold internationally, and he is currently working on his fourth children's picture book.

Arthur's prestigious list of clients include: Disney, Warner Bros., Suzuki, and Carlton Greetings, among others. Although John is primarily known for his romantic fantasy watercolors, (ROMANTASY™) he is a figurative artist whose passion for the human form has led him to a to experiment in a wide variety of mediums.

His oils, pen & ink and pencil work all center around the same theme; the human figure. "There is no greater subject," the artist says. "For me, the figure is a vehicle for the soul. It all starts with the face; the expression, the attitude, the emotion. The body follows: the head upturned, the torso tilted or twisted, the arms outstretched, the hands, the feet- all have a part in the end result."

John also instructs Master Art seminars, and has a passion for blues piano and fly fishing. John lives with his wife, Maureen and their two children in the San Bernardino Mountains in Crestline, California.
