John Lacey

John Lacey is a self-taught artist, who began painting as a hobby around 1980 whilst working as a Motor Body Design Draftsman. He then went on (after more study) to work for himself as a Graphic Designer until 2004. During this twenty year period he continued to paint and gained a reputation and a following, which afforded him the pleasure of being able to become a professional artist in 2004. John has an absolute passion for painting and has spent countless hours at the easel, not to mention ten years of life drawing to hone his skills. His work is about self expression of the landscape and the occasional portrait.
