Hello! My name is John. I am an artist, father, husband, entrepreneur, bass player, music lover (U2, The Beatles, Van Halen are my favs), KC sports fanatic, youth soccer supporter, Star Wars/Disney geek and purveyor of good vibes. I am very happy that you are here and I hope my work inspires you, brings a smile to your face and makes your life better in some way.
For as long as I can remember I have pursued the art of creating. From drawing Snoopy and Star Wars in elementary school, participating in art shows and studio art in high school, studying art and design in college and finally running my own graphic design business for 11+ years...the act of creativity through visual communication has been a passion throughout my life.
This lifelong passion has lead me to my latest venture...Knell Studioworks: A studio that creates intricate collage art, visually rich photography and dynamic graphics.
The focus of the studio is varied and diverse...from the stylistic/visually complex art of the photo collage, to photographing the natural environments, wide open spaces and small towns of the heartland, the urban landscape of KC, the magical environment of Disney World and beyond.
I am passionate about the creative process and dedicated to bringing my artistic voice forward. I very much hope you enjoy browsing through my site and please contact me with any questions, commissions or just to say "hello".
I live in suburban KC with my wife, 2 kids, 2 cats, 2 dogs and too many lightsabers to count.
Thanks and be well
