John Horsewell was born in 1956 in Essex to a family with an artistic inheritance as his father Ron Horsewell was a professional artist for over 30 years, so unsurprisingly, John followed in his footsteps.
The young Horsewell experimented with all forms of painting and although he is proficient in many mediums, including pastel and watercolours, he prefers the fluidity of oil, finding this ideal to express the use of colours and light in his paintings.
When Horsewell left school, he started working as an interior designer and painted in his spare time, exhibiting paintings first locally and then internationally as his reputation rose. At first, Horsewell started with stylistic influences inherited from his father, and it has only been in recent times that the artist has evolved a more personal style that is his.
In 1978, Horsewell gave up his interior design to fully concentrate on his artistic career, and his paintings are currently in collections in America, England and Japan. Horsewell currently lives with his wife and three children on the Essex-Suffolk border. Absorbing the influence of works by John Haskins and Myles Birkett Foster, John Horsewell continues to produce striking landscapes in contrasting strong colours, as seen in his series of seaside themed paintings.

We had decided to change all the pictures in our living room and this was one of the first three we purchased. The colours were vibrant and perfectly complemented our colour scheme. To ensure continuity we decided that all frames would be Silver 4.4 Cushion with no mounts and this was certainly the right choice. The quality is very good and even at the original price would have represented very good value compared with those pictures which we had been thinking about in local shops. With a 30% discount offer at the time we were more than pleased. From now on we will not even bother to spend time looking around the High Street.
