John Otter featured on ArtQuench

art, John Otter news, words

I was recently invited to be a featured artist at ArtQuench magazine, sharing my backstory. It took me longer than expected to write. I’m usually not one to share much about where I came from, I’m much more interested in where I’m at now – but the process was pretty illuminating.

Encouraged by his artistic mother John learns at an early age the techniques of drawing. His travels to different environments affect his work and allow him to grow in new ways.  John’s exceptional work shows his range of talent and inspires us to continue to grow in our craft.
