John was born in Oldham in 1924. He worked in a variety of jobs until he was made redundant at the age of fifty six. After spending five years as an adult at art evening classes, John found himself faced with a choice to start a new job or take a new direction. He decided it was time to become a full time artist.

John achieved both commercial and critical success, and no more so than in the last ten years or so of his life. He had numerous successful solo exhibitions, ranging from Manchester, Falmouth and London, with his work being purchased by the House of Lords and now hanging in the Committee Rooms.

John sadly died aged 87 on 16th July 2011.
