About John Ormsby
I was born in Scotland in 1969 and trained and worked as a Graphic Designer in Glasgow. I moved to England in 2002 and started painting in my spare time but am now a full time artist, working from my home in Bolton, Greater Manchester.
I am inspired by the streets around me, people going about their daily business, and how the weather changes how streets and people look. In my paintings I am trying to create the world as I would like it to be, or as it once was.
