Sail Away

An exhibition of paintings by John Abraham, a local artist, who has returned to painting after almost 50 years.

Working in acrylics, John’s subject matter usually includes water and large, often dramatic skies reminiscent of Turner.

Who’s it for

John’s work is accessible to and enjoyed by everyone, young and old alike.

abrab2About the Artist

As a teenager John attended Northampton Art College, working mainly in pastels.  However, life pulled him in various directions and there seemed to be no time for painting.
He was nudged back into painting by his partner Beverley and his long-suppressed artistic expression was released.  He now divides his time between painting and his ‘day job’, restoring antique chairs and sofas.
