John Hughes

Born in Birmingham in 1934, John had an interest in railways from an early age. Like countless hordes of small boys, he spent many happy hours perched on grassy embankments, peering over brick walls or pressed against iron railings with grubby paper and pencil stub in hand recording the passage of the GWR's finest.
Without the benefit of a formal art training, reliance is placed on experience gained from 40 years of photography to assist in picture making and this probably explains the predilection for the graphic simplicity of monochrome images achieved with pen and ink.
John also uses watercolour and acrylics.
