John Ballard

I was born in Bristol in 1957 and now live in Barnstaple, Devon. I am self taught, with no formal art training, and have been painting for more than 30 years. My style of painting, using primarily water colours and water colour pencils, often draws inspiration from the encapsulating Devon scenery which features an abundance of colours and moods. My passion for art stems from an intense urge to create something pleasing to the eye. I feel that to capture the intricacies of a scenery or view as I first saw it and share these with others who feel the same way is extremely rewarding.
