From John Ferrie's website

Vancouver, British Columbia has been my home since I was born. There I studied art at Emily Carr College of Art and Design, and graduated in 1988.
My love of Vancouver and life on the west coast inspires me. Images flow in whimsy – sweeping brush strokes, fearless colour choices, and intrinsic detail. My medium is acrylic paint on canvas, stylized and potent, in jewel-toned expression. I endeavor to give my subjects their own voice through organic shape and mild deconstruction, evoking this ever evolving part of the world.
My passion for painting drives me. Each piece is a puzzle, and as the work flows through me, the complex equation unravels.
I have been fortunate enough to exhibit my work in many wonderful places including Seattle, Hong Kong, Miami, New York and San Francisco, and I’ve had more than 100 self-produced exhibitions in Vancouver.
