John Waterhouse Artworks

nt - from walking the fields and woodlands that surround the area where I live, to simply watching people going about their daily lives. New ideas for paintings constantly enter my head and I note many of them down on paper, so as not to forget them.John Waterhouse grew up in a village in Staffordshire in the UK. At 16 he finished high school, having achieved an A in what was equivalent back then to GCSE Art and also receiving the ‘Best Art Pupil’ award at school, indicating potential success at an artistic career, if he chose to pursue one.

Initially he started a non-art related job in a warehouse. As his popularity as an artist grew, he changed jobs from full time to part time in the warehouse, allowing him more time to develop his painting skills. At the beginning he was concerned that if he stopped his warehouse job, he may not be able to cope financially, a concern many young artists share today.

At the turn of the Millennium, he left the part time position and began teaching art to young offenders in Prison’s, twice a week. Finally, the demand for his original art became so great that he was confident enough to become a full time artist.

He still teaches to young offenders once a week as he finds the work tremendously enjoyable and worthwhile. Waterhouse says that he discovered a lot of raw talent while teaching the young offenders, which wouldn’t have been discovered otherwise and that it helps them work through their own problems, particularly emotional ones.

His limited edition prints are easily recognisable, as most feature countryside and have a distinctive sepia colouring to them and often have the morning or late evening mist within them. Many are unaware that John Waterhouse is an accomplished photorealistic painter and has had a series of figurative, photo realistic prints released some years ago.


He claims that his main inspiration is the countryside, due to his upbringing in leafy Staffordshire and the area where he lives now. Waterhouse believes that the English countryside is very romantic and each place he has painted is character all of its own, just like a person.

More recently John has introduced new colours to his countryside paintings, Happy Days and Shining Through being two examples of his use of green yellow & blue to paint a more vibrant depiction of England, all be it typically ‘John Waterhouse.’
