John Running’s father taught him “If you want to make something truly unique, create it yourself.” John pursued creativity from a young age, inspired by the greeting cards and prints in his parents’ studio. He worked with the family business as creative director and production manager for 15 years until he opened his own art studio.
John enjoys presenting traditional themes in unique and distinctive ways. His sculptural wall art includes a variety of materials that emphasize texture and dimension. He combines new ideas with reused, rustic, earthy materials, molding them into renewed original pieces.
In his own words, the work reflects his love of nature and respect for those who walked this land long ago. His newest pieces, the Dragonflies, are all unique in their own way, expressing his interest in bold color and movement.
