Artist Statement Hi, I'm John Bateson. I was born in Ottawa, Canada, in 1954. My first exposure to drawing and painting came from watching my Mother at the easel. I was fascinated by the act of painting; watching as a picture appeared on Mother's canvas. I was soon given some materials and I joined in the fun. My earliest dated work is from 1959.
My formal art training began in high school, followed by a stint at Algonquin College, in Ottawa, and finally, graduation from the Ontario College of Art, in 1986.
I've worked as a screen printer, an illustrator and as a fine artist.
Currently I work mainly in acrylics and watercolor and, occasionally in oils or gouache. I try to choose the medium which will best suit my goal for the painting. Also, its refreshing to switch media from time to time.
I love to paint and to continue to learn from each new piece.
I hope you enjoy my work.
