For John Payne, painting portraits, whether they are of people or of animals is nothing short of an ideal vocation in life. Born in Essex in 1973, John grew up with a passion for art and later developed a profound talent for portraits.
“After spending the last 6 or 7 years as a professional artist, I can truly say I have found my niche in life .”
“I cannot see myself ever doing anything else other than paint for my living.””In short I can honestly say that I am doing exactly what I have always wanted to do. I believe this enthusiasm shows in my work”.
