John Hawkwood, trained by Ian Hanson who went on to be the principal of Madame Tussauds, is a happy confluence of classical tradition and contemporary interpretation, and judges the quality of his work by its ability to communicate and evoke powerful emotional responses.

John originally from Lancashire, now works from his studio in the barn at his home near York.
Went to Art College in the sixties, he then went into teaching - a move which he now feels was a mistake and spent a number of years raising his three sons on a small self-sufficient farmstead high in the Pennines. He eventually turned to a career in art in the mid eighties beginning in a rented gareet studio in Hebden Bridge.
