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,
