John has spent years studying both art and Biology. He received a Bachelor of arts from Boise State University in 1986 and a Masters of Biology from University of Oregon in 1990. His employment history includes work on salmon in eastern Oregon, salamanders in western Oregon, Marbled Murrelets and sea lions on the Oregon coast and marine invertebrates in Oregon and Alaska. In the early 90's he decided to combine his interests in art and biology and became a biological illustrator. After several years of doing freelance work in scientific illustration he accepted the position of Sr. Biological Illustrator at the University of Michigan's Museum of Zoology in 1996. This position provided him with the opportunity to expand his skills in traditional and digital illustration. He also teaches classes as an adjunct lecturer at the University of Michigan's School of Art. John does freelance work and is putting much more time into producing fine art in his spare time. Recently, with help from all the kids in his neighborhood, he finished illustrations for a Children's book for Sleeping Bear Press, "W is for Wave". The book will be coming out April 2008.
