About John Trowsdale

Welcome to John's paintings. The artworks you're about to view are all oil paintings, with a personal connection to John. Born April 1962 in northwest England, John's motivation to capture the landscapes and seascapes around the UK and beyond in a contemporary realism style is from his love of the outdoors. His ability in capturing the moment and mood comes from over 40 years experience working as a high quality Flexographic printer, where his eye for detail and skill in mixing printing inks has transferred smoothly to mixing artist paint over the last four years. Every colour in his paintings is mixed carefully to the scene in which he creates, and every brush stroke taken with equal care and attention. His methodical approach is a reflection of his personality as an artist. John has exhibited his International award winning work in a number of galleries including D31 Doncaster, Saul Hay Manchester and the Mall Galleries, London with the Royal Society of British Artists.

D31 Gallery Summer Exhibition

Having missed the artist launch party while in Rhodes, it was great to get the opportunity to see the gallery set up for the exhibition at first hand at the public launch.

Meeting Chinwe Russell, Laura Lee and the rest of the gallery team was inspiring, not to mention having some very interesting conversations with talented and diverse artists like London based Ekaterina Adelskaya. Three of my works were on display during the exhibition in Doncaster. Both of the original paintings seen in the photo have now sold.

The news is......I made the news

Following on from the small display I had in Romiley, a local newspaper noticed the display and wrote an article about me and my oil paintings, highlighting the landscape scenes of Romiley Village, Marple and Chadkirk that the locals know so well and love.

Award winning painting

I was delighted to come runner up in the
'Art show International' Landscape 2021 competition for 'Samuel's Mill' Although once a little sceptical of art competitions as being subjective, I think my attitude might be changing towards them as I have started to believe it helps to build self confidence as an artist and to a degree, gives the painting and myself some credibility.

My Grandad loved your print. I gave it him today after getting it framed for Father's Day. He cried. He was made up. So thank you for creating such a special painting.

Now that's service for you! Got it, it's lovely, thanks so much.
