John, who is originally from Epworth, Lincolnshire, has lived at Salthouse with his wife Jacqui, since 1995. He has worked on numerous commissions, with patrons including cricketer Ian Botham - a former neighbour - and the Earl of Yarborough, for whom he produced a series of 50 paintings.

He published his autobiography, Watercolour Words, in 2000, and, in 2003, completed a collection of Wesley heritage studies which formed the framework for his book, John Wesley, a Pictorial Journey.
