Influenced by Edward Hopper and David Cutter, he started his career as a painter and has since enjoyed creating his distinctive screen-print-like digital illustrations, and has won acclaim for his imaginative interpretations of everyday life. John lives near Rotherham, Yorkshire. Visit his website at www.johnholcroft.com
