Art Instructor Info:

John H. Burrow


John H. Burrow is an American/Canadian artist living in the beautiful Sedona, Arizona and Shuswap Lake area of British Columbia. He shares his love of nature with others through his work and art instruction. John’s oil & acrylic paintings are always bright, full of color and imbued with a sense of joy and playfulness. When people see his paintings for the first time, they frequently comment about how good his work makes them feel.


John’s past experience in the field of commercial art has given him the versatility to paint different genres. At a time when most artists attempt to get “branded” and paint in only one recognizable style, John is a renegade. He enjoys being able to express his warm memories of growing up in a small town using a folk art style. But when he wants to capture the beauty of an old farmhouse surrounded by a luxuriant garden, he chooses to use a more impressionistic technique. The Canadian landscape and the Group of Seven are also a source of inspiration for John. He can be frequently found painting en plein air working in a freer and fluid, “painterly” style.


John is a product of Utah State Universities Art Education Department. While attending Utah State he was president of The National Art Education Association. John Also took graduate courses at The Los Angelas Art Center.


John was art instructors for Grant McEwan Community College, Kelowna Art Gallery, and taught many private classes to individual artists, art groups and art associations (like The British Columbia Federation of Canadian Artists, and The Alberta Federation of Canadian Artists.)


John’s work is in collections all over the world. He accepts commissions and also conducts workshops for groups of aspiring artists.


John H Burrow is a member of BC. Plein Air,  Canadian Plein Air Painters, The California Art Club, My Art Club, Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, and The Shuswap Artists Group.
