25th May – 2nd June 2024 Creative Kernow

John Featherstone


Show casing the beautiful scenery of Looe, in a range of loose sketches and paintings using a mixture of watercolour, ink, acrylic and oils.

I’m thrilled to share that I’m diving into my first-ever Open Studio and look forward to welcoming you! After a recent move from London with my wife, I’ve established a design and painting studio on the South coastline of Cornwall in Looe. I have a creative background, having studied at Chelsea College of Art and gained a BA(Hons) in Graphic Design at UAL (University of the Arts London) and currently work within the Advertising Industry. As a break/balance from my commercial work, I’ve started to observe and sketch again…. trying to capture and recreate the beauty in what I see.

The instant I step outside, inspiration sweeps over me. Whether I’m capturing the untamed beauty of the coastline or the lively energy of a bustling harbour, I find joy in portraying my surroundings. I welcome the challenges, artistic conflicts, and the distinctive path my pen or brush leads me down. Recently, my creative exploration has gained momentum and has evolved into experimenting with oils, inks, acrylics, and larger formats. Although it’s early days, the journey has been incredibly exciting and rewarding for me.

I’ll be showcasing and offering a variety of budget-friendly sketches and paintings featuring my beautiful local surroundings. I’m also open to discussing any potential commissions you may have in mind.

I’m really looking forward to sharing my journey and stories with you.
