Essex born John Horsewell had a love for art at an early age; unsurprising when you consider that his parents and grandfather were all professional artists. Whilst at school John experimented with all forms of media, soon realising that oils were most suited to his style of work, best allowing him to convey the light and shadow he desired.
Upon leaving school John entered the world of interior design, continuing to paint in his spare time. He exhibited extensively, first locally and then as his reputation gained weight – across Manchester, Birmingham and London. In 1978 he decided to pursue painting as a full time profession, and has experienced great success in doing so.
Working today from his studio on the Essex/Suffolk border, John continues to express his affection for the naturel world around him, his technique ever evolving.
