About John Stuart Pryce
John’s love for art began at a very early age, as he discovered the great satisfaction derived from his ability to draw and paint. He continued developing his artistic interests, and eventually became an art major at the highly acclaimed H.B. Beal Tech. in London, Ontario. Since that time John has worked and studied in Montreal, Chicago and Toronto. During a successful career as an architectural illustrator, his work was used in projects around the world. His seemingly loose yet eloquent technique is the result of years of experience in the disciplines of drawing, colour and composition.
John currently divides his time between painting and sharing his artistic knowledge with others through his painting workshops.
“The purest and most rewarding form of painting, in my opinion, is “en plein air” as it challenges all of the skills and discipline of the artist.”
“There is value in all forms of art whether decorative, non-objective or representational but I prefer to use my artistic skills to bring an awareness of the beauty that surrounds us and the environment that we take for granted.
A painting should have a soul, make a statement or give rise to thought and conversation.
I paint only subjects or experiences that are personally connected and strive to share the emotions that I feel as eloquently and creatively as possible.
My goal is to share with others what my eyes see, my heart feels and my soul yearns to understand”
