John Birch Art. I now live and work in Gosport which is in the South of Hampshire. I lived in a village for many years and relocated to Gosport to enjoy the Sea and to give me inspiration for my artwork. Painting mainly with acrylic paint using a combination of flowers and ceramic objects such as jugs and vases. Art has always been part of my life and now back in the South, I am able to work as a full-time artist. I paint mainly with acrylics, many layers are applied in order to build up the work. I always like to add texture to the work and the drying time of acrylic paint allows me to do this. Using a variety of tools I scrape back layers or scratch into the surface to reveal the layers below.

About My Art

Spring Flowers

I always take a lot of photographs for my art while out walking I also sketch the different landscapes, flowers and birds. These together with everyday objects give me the inspiration and the ideas I use in the different pieces of work. I aim to create pieces of work that are bright, colourful and vibrant.

Although I sell the original works that I paint, I also sell prints online. You can find a few prints available that you can customise on the Saatchi website. They will be printed and posted to you. You can buy prints by John Birch at the Saatchi art website.

Green Door Art Trail

Welcome to the Green Door Art Trail 2014

Greendoor art trail

Welcome to the 2014 Green Door Art Trail. This is our ninth year and is the biggest and most varied so far, with a wide range of talented artists opening their studios. This year the Trail will not only include Green Door artists but will see their “colleagues” exhibiting alongside them. We also have a good number of galleries involved, which we are very pleased about. Both of these mean even more choices for you to visit and perhaps purchase work directly from the artist.
The Trail is very important to us but is not the only event we organise. On the facing page, you will see a list of exhibitions and events in 2014 and even 2015. These are varied and appeal to a wide range of art lovers.

The artists at Holme Mills open their studio doors and welcome you to come and see their eclectic mix of artwork! Come and browse the rooms with Paintings by Colin Binns, John Birch, Christine Rooney, Ruth Castle, Annie Coxey and Liron Bourla. Felt art by Donna Campbell and prints by Ruth Wharton and Enda Farrell. Fused Glass & Sculpture by Diane Rowlinson and David Singleton. See some of the artists at work and enjoy tea and delicious cakes at our pop-up café.
