Artist Profile

JOHN BLUNDELL

MORE ABOUT JOHN

 I was born in Brighton in 1954. I am married to Val and we now have four sons, four daughters in law and seven grandchildren.

I started painting some 30 years ago and, like many who take up art after leaving school, I am mainly self-taught. Nowadays, having explored various mediums, I mainly paint in water mixable oils.

I am a member of the SAA. (A community for all artists) My main inspiration has been the sea and varying coastline of Northumberland. I love to paint waves, but I have also explored a wide variety of styles and subjects.

In July 2017 Val and I moved to Faldingworth, near Market Rasen in Lincolnshire and that September we felt the call of God to start a group for Christian Artists. Bara House Artists was born.

In September 2018 I was diagnosed with bowel cancer and the subsequent scan showed that this had spread to the liver.

An eighteen-month journey (which included two operations and chemotherapy) later, I was declared cancer free.

Our God is faithful!

Over the last three years I have realised that being an artist is my God-given purpose and not something I need to apologise for! My heart’s desire is for artists, whatever their medium, to find their freedom to truly create and be all that God wants them to be.
