Artist Spotlight: John Matlock
John Matlock is a second-generation fine artist
from West Springfield. Over the past 30 years, John
has established himself as the top marine life artist
in New England and beyond. His fine attention to
detail and a vibrant palette allow the viewer to
actually step into the scene and become one with
the painting and embrace the serenity of the
underwater world. John chooses acrylics as his
medium because he feels it is greener for the
environment. John hopes to reflect his concerns for
an ever-changing ecosystem, polluted seas, and
water conservation. He hopes to help preserve
them all for future generations.
