John Haskins | Mail Order Art
John Haskins was born in Bermondsey 1938, London where John gained his City and Guilds Diploma in illustration at art school and had a successful early career as a Chief Technical illustrator. Throughout this time John Haskins continued to pursue his love of painting. After exhibiting in London over a period of years, John took up painting on a full-time basis. This decision enabled John to combine his passion for travelling with the opportunity to paint and collect material from around the world, as well as stage successful one-man shows and exhibitions in international locations such as Australia, Hawaii, Los Angeles, Madrid, New York and Paris. Also many of John Haskins art have been reproduced on magazine front covers, prints, calandars, greeting cards and book illustrations. Working today from his studio at home in the Bedfordshire countryside, many of John’s paintings reflect the atmosphere and colour of his surroundings. John’s lifelong attention to detail lends an authenticity to rural scenes he depicts. John Haskins is married with two daughters, who frequently appear as subjects of his paintings. John’s work vividly evokes all the nostalgic charm of childhood.
