|It all started on the morning drive
along the motorway to the office, when John Garghan suddenly
decided to leave the “rat race” of software development
to pursue the professional practise of an artist.
|This sudden moment of “seeing
the light” has led to many new experiences, none that
could have been envisaged on that drive, because the original
plan was to paint views of near by Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford
and the Cotswolds and also continue the passion for painting
|From the start the business commitment included
two very important criteria’s
||high quality product, using the best
materials and presentation
||through training courses make improvements in
both the art form and working in the arts as a business
|In pursuit of the developing of the
practise, John began a Fine Art degree (BA Hons) and it was
through this investigative and experimental learning that he
was pushed into challenging and new areas. the results of his
thought provoking sculpture have been exhibited at the Light
House Gallery, Wolverhampton.
|A digital camera is now constantly
at hand while searching through scrap yards or walking Sally
the dog through the woods. the pursuit of a unique image to
base an oil canvas churned up thousands of now deleted photos,
but the result of an almost castaway click taken on a damp January
morning has been expanded into the photography and digital art
form that is included on this web site.
|Past business experience of managing companies
in diverse industries such as health and safety, computing and
radio production have provided a wealth of understanding in
operating a well organised structure to operate from.
