John Maxon spent his youthful days painting in the fields behind Stanford University and was fortunate to be exposed to and to study the works of Nathan Oliviera, Wayne Thiebaud and David Park during those years.

He attended San Jose State University and apprenticed with Sam Richardson and John Battenberg. Studying under Roy DeForest, William T. Wiley, and Wayne Thiebaud in graduate school at UC Davis, John explored many variations of technique and style. The following eight years were spent perfecting his techniques and co-founding Mount Madonna Center for Creative Arts & Sciences, a successful alternative private school in the mountains above Santa Cruz, California.

A brief move to Santa Fe, New Mexico in the early ‘90s expanded John’s vision and palette once again. The influence of the dramatic light, shapes, and other local artists enabled him to put together a body of work that resonated with the spectacular essence of this territory. Carrying this inspiration back to California, John has explored the beauty of the Central Coast landscape and its relationship to figures interacting within it. “As the days progress, I certainly feel very blessed and inspired.” It is this inspiration, which he shares with us, that has made John Maxon such a unique and successful artist.
