John Haldane

Asheville, NC - United States

Hello! I am a published professional artist living in Asheville, North Carolina. My artwork has been featured in fine art galleries in Arizona and North Carolina, and in calendars, books, and magazines. The magazines include The Scenic, the Laurel of Asheville, The Writers & Artists Quarterly, COSTCO Magazine, Wild WNC News, Camera in the Wild Magazine, and more. I have had articles published in several of the these magazines as well.

The Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar produced by Ray's Weather Center has included my images continuously since 2012.

My art is unique; created using cameras, software, digital tools, and/or acrylic paints. Sometimes I start with a photograph; sometimes I start with an idea on the computer; sometimes I paint. My art always begins in my head. It evolves in response to music I hear, the weather, or good vibrations (or maybe something I ate). Each piece is unique. When it is strange or different, I credit my birthplace: I’m a Maine-iac.

I am a member of the Carolina Nature Photographers Association (CNPA) and Kelby Media (formerly the National Association of Photoshop Professionals). I have also joined the Friends of the WNC Nature Center, the North Carolina Arboretum, The Great Smoky Mountains Association, the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, and the Swannanoa Valley Museum because I believe in buying from local people and supporting local causes.

I have over 20 years of experience using Adobe Photoshop and have honed my photography skills with more than 40 years of film and digital camera work.

I started painting with oils in the 1980s, using Bob Ross' techniques. He taught me that 'there are no mistakes; just happy little accidents.' The Asheville Regional Airport featured six of my 20x30 canvas prints and Cheddar’s Restaurant in Asheville purchased 3 prints that are on display in their dining area. My piece, “Leaves in Ice” placed in a CNPA competition called “Abstract Appalachia.” I have received additional awards granted by various organizations and websites including CNPA.

I live in the woods in East Asheville with my wife, Black Bears, raccoon, possum, squirrels, rabbits, deer, and many birds (including turkeys).
