john fox haag


Like many artists, John has studied fine art and has been painting since he was young. He made a living as a graphic designer for the better part of his adult life. During that time painting took a back seat to design and family. In the early 2000’s that changed. Graphic design no longer kept John’s interest and he redirected his creative pursuits to making art.

Twenty-five years of design continue to serve him well. The formal aspects that John employed as a designer are the same principals that are at the foundation of his paintings: organizing space, working with color, and playing with forms. John works in oil and watercolor, enjoying each medium and their own challenges. Since 2003 John has been showing his work in San Francisco, Sacramento, and Santa Fe.
