What can I say? My wife would use two words... Victor Meldrew ..............BUT.... I doooon't belieeeeeve it.

You can see more of my art/craftwork as it is completed by viewing my blog at however I have to say that these days I tend to upload everything to Flickr first. But I do have more to say about the paintings and collages, from where I took inspiration to how I created it. Of course I may be biased but it is worth a quick look.

I am a self-taught artist, mainly working in watercolour and pastels but have dabbled in most media at one time or another. At the moment I am into collage and the many aspects of papercrafting. An interest aquired via aceo and atc artworks.

I retired early from my job with BMW/Rover as a project manager for overseas projects (EEC) to concentrate on art; but still do not find nearly enough time to satisfy my love of the creative arts.

Apart from art I am also interested in music and you can see a couple of home videos of me performing my own songs at

    "John is an amazing artist. He takes painstaking effort to make each piece a work to be proud of. I recently swapped multiple cards with John and the cards I recieved are of excellent quality. John incorporates so many mediums and methods into his work.

    And his NOATC art is equally impressive. I look forward to collecting John's work for many years to come. He is a real artist not to be overlooked. Thanks John for a wonderful ATC trading experience."
