Hi, I'm John Morris. I was born and raised in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England, and I began painting at the age of 17. Seeing Bob Ross' style of painting, I was instantly transformed into a world of colour and desire to paint. I began by experimenting with the Japanese style of art, with birds on the rocks and various other kinds of oriental art, before finding my true love... The Mountains.
Painting for me has always been a way to let out that which is in my heart and soul. The mountains always has been a source of peace for me. I loved seeing the snow-capped mountains in the real world and wanted to achieve that feeling when someone saw my mountains on canvas. However I could just never get the snow to break just right.That was until I finally learned the technique of using the palette knife. Once I leaned that less pressure is actually what makes the snow break, I knew I was onto something special.
I fell in love with your style and knew I had to have a painting of my wee family done by you. Plus, you are a pleasure to work with.
My early christmas prezzie from hubby arrived today, I am absolutely delighted with it, John has captured my babies perfectly. I am so proud to show this off. You’ve done a wonderful job. Thank you so much.
