studio_john_schevers_quadra_islandThrough my engagement with the world, culture, nature, and humanity I nurture the muse. The generative energy of the creative process makes me an opportunist in the best sense of the word. I see opportunity and potential everywhere from the ground at my feet to universal concepts; and within the people around me.

The immutable law of the cycle of life and the eternal dynamism of interconnectedness are fundamental concepts in each painting. Symbolism, choice of mediums, and creative process play a role in expressing and animating these laws and processes.

My paintings reveals aspects that mirror the thematic core and its principals at every level of production. I hold my own practice and process to the rules I strive to illustrate in my work.

My work teaches me. They are part of my life journey. When I paint, I'm drawing from the best of the person I can be.
