Biography
John Buxton's 31 years as a successful illustrator has evolved into these past 20 + years as an honored Fine Artist . Painting scenes inspired by the 18th century Wilderness Frontier. A frontier that influenced the development and relations of "The New World "; it's people and what would become a New Nation.
 
There have been many awards and accomplishments along his 55 year career. John's work is recognized in the Western Art genre.

After 31 years of painting almost every subject; using numerous styles and techniques to please countless clients ... why Historical Art now?
 
Perhaps, because his ancestors were among this countries first settlers? They arrived in the 15th century as a part of first permanent English Colony in North America.... Jamestown. (check your history books [...]
