Artist : John Haskins

John Haskins was born in London, where he graduated from art college with a City and Guilds Diploma in Illustration. John spent many years as an illustrator, depicting technical products of industrial giants such as British Aerospace, Hawker Siddley Aviation, Rolls Royce and NASA but eventually gave this up to devote his full attention to painting.

Working from his countryside home and studio in the Bedfordshire countryside, his paintings evoke an atmosphere of nostalgic charm for seasonal rural activity. He captures the afternoon stillness of a river-bank, the rustle and nod of the cornfield’s edge or the buzz of bees in the hedgerows.
His lifelong 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.


John has had many successful exhibition in London, Frankfurt, Paris, Pennsylvania, Edinburgh, Los Angeles, Melbourne and Sydney and his work can be found in private collections and galleries in five continents.
