About John Crawford

His Story

John R. Crawford is an artist currently living and painting in the Santa Cruz area of northern California. Living on the coast offers the inspiration of the constantly changing and always dramatic Pacific Ocean and Monterey Bay.

My goal is to reach the point where my skills and my emotions are aligned allowing the forms to evolve spontaneously, surfacing on the canvas without premeditation; brush stroke and color responding and influencing one another in the moment.

“Each day I challenge myself. I practice and train my brush to be ready to demonstrate my vision.

“I have added plein air painting into my process, along with studio work. This brings added images and immediacy to my art. My studio is a reflection of this ongoing process of development and change.”
