John Whittall

John Whittall is an established artist living in Chiddingfold, Surrey, with works in permanent collections in the National Portrait Gallery and Westminster Abbey.

 "...These paintings will never be the stuff of fervid controversy in incomprehensible art jargon; they are images with which to live in peace as they become old friends." Brian Sewell, Art Critic

 This site reflects my work over the past forty years since I walked into Camberwell School of Art and Crafts and began my life as an artist. 

Leaving art school I remember a tutor asking me what I planned to do, "Paint" I replied and that's been my life ever since. To be honest it hasn't been easy but that sense of excitement whenever I face a new subject has never left me and I still regard myself as on a journey of discovery. 

 John is married to fellow artist Carol Ann Dickson.
