John Hemmen's Studio







John Hemmen’s studio is located on Bainbridge Island in the state of Washington.  Between travels and other commitments, this is where John practices his art.  Time spent outside the studio is essential to let the studio works percolate and form.  Some works take shape and are completed quickly.  Others take much more time, so that time away from the work can result in it being seen with fresh eyes, and breakthroughs of technical or theme problems can be overcome.  Because of the nature of how works evolve, John usually has multiple works going at the same time, and often in more than one theme at a time.

So far in 2008 John has continued working in the themes of the City and the theme of Symbols.  He has also been doing some figurative studies, jungle landscapes, and free form works.
