John Hayes

Cheltenham artist John HayesJohn was a war baby, born in Dartford Kent in 1940; He has now retired from the rat race.

Having dabbled in art since his school days, using many different mediums he taught himself to become quite a proficient artist. Between raising a family of 3 boys and working as a precision engineer for over 40 years, he gained great pleasure in producing pencil portraits for friends and family and the odd commission.

More recently he has turned his hand to drawing classic, vintage and modern cars, refining his technique to try and achieve the photo realism he believes is required to present the car in its true form. His efforts paid off when he was recently elected as an associate of the GUILD OF MOTORING ARTISTS. His work and his prints are sold in Motor Museums and shops and have been used by motoring magazines in the UK and the USA. 

John has recently decided to add some colour to his work, but because of lack of working space chose to use coloured pencils, as they make no mess and are easy to clear away! He has found it a very satisfying medium to work with, especially for his favourite subject 'The Automobile'. He uses Karisma pencils on Bristol Board.

Most of his original work is A3 size which are scanned and reproduced as greetings cards, unframed or framed prints.
