artwork

John's artwork is largely based on his photography through the application of creative techniques and styles in post-production. Through careful manipulation, an otherwise plain photograph takes on the look of a sketch or several styles of painting.

His interest in artwork arose from John's desire to give hand-made, creative Christmas gifts to several friends and family members. Working from several photographs in his collection, John discovered a knack for creating unique pieces of art from those images.

gallery Didi

Didi is John's Papillon and a natural inspiration for his artwork. Her distinctive butterfly ears and long, flowing coat make for very distinctive pieces of art.
