John is a modern and unique artist who works across a variety of mediums to interpret and capture the beauty and simplicity of nature and the landscape that surrounds him.
He grew up loving art and the outdoors, and now enjoys the rural isolation of his cottage in the Durham Dales where the stunning scenery is a constant source of inspiration. A synthesis of experience is captured in John’s work which makes his paintings strong in mood with a tone of thoughtfulness and solitude.
Light features strongly in his work and changing light sequences particularly inspire him. His work is alive, vibrant and varied. Through his realistic and thoughtful compositions John is able to capture a beach in solitary stillness, dazzling sunlight moving across a landscape, or brooding encroaching storm clouds behind a lone tree.
John Hebborn’s paintings are as much about the atmosphere of a place as they are about specific locations.
