After gaining his City and Guilds diploma in Illustration
at art school, John Haskins had a successful early career
as a Chief Technical Illustrator working for industry, before
deciding to devote his full attention to his first love, that
of landscape painting. Working today from his studio at his
home in the heart of the English countryside, his paintings
reflect all the atmosphere and colour of his surroundings.
His life long attention to detail lends an authenticity to
the rural scenes he depicts. Occasionally using his two daughters
as models, his work vividly evokes all the nostalgic charm
of childhood. The popularity of his work in recent years has
led to John enjoying successful exhibitions and one- man shows
in London and Los Angeles. His paintings are to be found in
many private collections and major galleries at home and overseas.
