About the Artist

John Driskel practised as an architect in South Africa for ten years before relocating to the UK in 2001.

He has lived in the Cumbrian Lake District since 2008.

His artistic skills have evolved from his illustrative work involved in architectural design services which he provides for a number of UK and international practices.

He combines traditional media techniques with the latest technology available to artists and finds inspiration in the mixed media of Ray Balkwill and the digital paintings of David Hockney and Craig Mullins.

He is inspired by the fantastic opportunities provided by the landscapes and townscapes of Cumbria and the Lake District.

John can produce commissions in a variety of media including gouache, watercolour, digital media, pen and graphite or combinations of mixed media.
