John Anderson
I'm an amateur artist, originally from Gorton, Manchester, and I came to live and work in Jersey about 45 years ago.

I paint using acrylics or watercolour, and I'm handy with pencils, charcoals, pastels and inks. I work from sketches, my own photos and images taken from the print media. I'm happiest with figurative and narrative subjects, and I do enjoy going out with a sketch book, sitting on a bench, and then working the drawing up to something that can maybe be put into a frame.

I live in a little cottage in St Martin's parish with my wife Jilly and daughter Laura, and paint and draw in my shed in the garden.
