John Twinning was born in Birmingham, England in 1961.
He currently resides close to Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, where his family has lived on and off since 1965.
He studied 'O' and 'A' Level Art in two, rather than the customary four years - showing a not inconsiderable flair for the subject - as well as early signs of the realism in his art that would later become his 'trademark' style.
Artist's current location Staffordshire / West Midlands.

In 1983 John gained a BA in Visual Communications Studies at West Midlands College of Higher Education. The course consisted of practical work in several creative fields including photography, graphic design, video and audio visual production. In his graduating year, John's photographs won first prize in a competition organised by The Observer and Christian Aid which was open to all professional UK photographers.
After College, John worked for a number of years as a freelance journal photographer and graphic designer.
John has exhibited and sold his artwork at the Singer & Friedlander / Sunday Times watercolour Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London. In 1997 his painting of Lichfield Cathedral was selected and sold during the show's preview. In July 2008, John's painting Low Tide was selected for exhibition at the prestigious Royal Watercolour Society & Sunday Times Watercolour Competition exhibition. Again the piece sold at the exhibition's preview held at Bankside Gallery, home to the RWS.
He has also shown work at the Friends of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists Open Exhibition; as well as other galleries in the Midlands and East Anglia.
