John Horsewell from a very early age was aware of the love of art in his family, so it was as natural to pick up a paintbrush as it was for him to learn to walk, since both his grandfather and both his parents are professional artists.
Whilst at school, he experimented with all forms of painting and although he became proficient in many media, including pastel and water colour, he soon realised that oils were ideal for his style and to give full expression for his use of colour and light.
Upon leaving school, he entered the world of interior design still continued painting in his spare time, exhibiting paintings, first locally and then as his reputation spread, exhibitions were held in London, Birmingham, Manchester and other major cities.
In 1978 he finally decided to concentrate fully on his art and since that date has gone from strength to strength. His paintings are now in collections in the across the globe.
John Horsewell most frequently chooses to depict his own most loved landscapes, from the vistas of Southern Europe to the tranquil shores of Florida, where he spends much of his time. His paintings are executed using both brushes and palette knives, giving them their distinctive texture. The flair with which he paints communicates the pleasure of the locations he loves, inviting the viewer to share in the experience with him.
Working today from his studio on the Essex/ Suffolk border, John Horsewell continues to express his affection for the natural world around him, his technique ever evolving.
