John Kearns

John is an established creative artist. His work is expressed in acrylics, videography and sculpture. A marine theme runs through many of his pieces, from painting antique toy French boats to sculpturing whale tails supporting WDC, the whale and dolphin charity.

His most favoured pieces are:

Edlei’s End, an acrylic on canvass depicting the last Danish Seine style fishing boat built in Grimsby in 1962, now lying at Mistley.

A set of wind up French model boats on abstract seas.

A series of sculptured humpback whale tails.

Living next to the River Stour and a stone’s throw from Constable country is undoubtedly the source of his inspiration.

His videography is a vehicle for businesses wishing to extend their reach to a greater audience. The film of his choice is The Roast Beef Story founded to help injured ex service men and women. Watch on Vimeo https://vimeo.com/253355805

He is married with two sons and two wonderful daughters-in-law and ‘the' most patient and tolerant wife. One grandchild about to increase to two. Hates the A12 with a passion and cannot wait for the invention of teleportation.
