About John Pickles
Born in Cardiff John Pickles was brought up in a family of painters, both his mother and father trained at the Royal College of Art and he has painted since his childhood. He was a town planner and architect by profession and retired as a partner from one of the largest architectural practices in the UK and since then he has travelled widely and painted many of the places he visited. He is especially fond of Italy where he can indulge in his painting and his love of music.
John has exhibited widely across the North West and with the Royal Watercolour Society in London. His work is snapped up quickly by those who admire his ability to capture the beauty and sense of the places he paints. His work is in several collections and he has been commissioned to paint for the University of Liverpool, Holford Associates and Enterprise PLC.
John was delighted to have had the opportunity to be part of show with Elizabeth Frink at the Ayling Porteous Gallery in Chester as well as in the Mall Gallery in London.
John exhibits regularly and works primarily in oils and watercolours. His work is collected all over the world and recent commissions have been for corporations and universities.
