John Ratcliffe

Winchester, Hampshire

I have been drawing and painting on and off since forever, although I am an Engineer by birth and by nature. I spent a few years in the construction industry, followed by many years in software. A lot of drawing, diagrams, graphics and visualisation. I have started drawing and painting as serious fun again. My subjects are a celebration of life. They include flowers, portraits and familiar landmarks. I have an interest in history, which influences my style and content.
