– From John –
I am a clinical psychotherapist and instructor at the University of Denver, where I teach liberal arts. My wife, Dayna, and I have been married for twenty-five years and are the parents of three boys, who all are interested in music and the arts. They sometimes paint with me. I began painting seriously when my father, a kind and generous man, moved into assisted living at an advanced age. Not knowing what to give someone who really didn’t have much use for material possessions, I began drawing and painting scenes from photographs that I’d taken earlier in life, and I gave him these on special days. I hope it pleased him.
I believe that an artist is simply someone who has to create—-there is no choice. It feels that way to me—when I’m painting, I feel more alive, more connected, than at almost any other moment. Artistic expression is, for me, an act of faith that there are still good things in the world, and that beauty can be found in the simplest of things.
An avid outdoorsman, John’s painting subjects are often taken from remote locations. He specializes in winter landscapes and aquatic themes.
He and his wife, Dayna, live in Littleton, Colorado, with their three sons, Ben, Matt, and Brett.
