John began watercolor painting while traveling through Asia during graduate school. Transitioning from the forgiving chalk pastels as a primary medium took time and patience. This process resulted in John developing a loose and distinct style that he continues to refine. John has worn many hats in his work career, including being a nurse, designer, teacher, and ultimately a full time artist. He loves partnering with students of all ages as they explore and discover within the creative process. The greatest thing in the world is the freedom I feel as I paint. Free to explore, free to create, free to express.
In tonight’s What’s Working, dozens of artists have found a creative place to work under one roof. They are part of the Central Arts Collective in midtown Mobile. The Collective is located in the classroom space at Central Presbyterian Church on Dauphin Street.
Hi my name is Alicia with Southern Raven Designs and I’m a polymer clay artist. I started this as hobby a few years ago but quickly fell in love with it. I mostly make earrings but I also make barrettes, bookmarks and trinket trays out of polymer clay and always open to new ideas! I’m excited to be a part of this group of artists and can’t wait to meet you all!
