After playing in various pop bands, John contributed original, music and live performance for a number of theatre and performance pieces for the Perth International Arts Festival between 1990 and 2006 as well as co-founded the performance group skadada (1995-2002). Combining circus, dance, martial arts, aerial gymnastics, visuals, puppetry, video and original sound, skadada toured throughout Australia and Asia to widespread critical and public acclaim. Rekindling an interest in photography around 2012, John started working on the digital manipulation of photographs by utilising patterning, repetition, collage and abstraction - paralleling the constructing music from real-world audio samples. Whereas Escher was fascinated by the regular division of a plane in etchings and drawings, John has embraced a similar interest using photographs as the source material. The development of these techniques is well documented in over 11,000 Instagram posts. In 2013 John was runner-up in a Percent for Art submission for the Kalgoorlie High School redevelopment in partnership with Tony Pankiw The submission was based on large printed glass panels.

John has exhibited at Perth Centre of Photography and other group shows, been invited to submit work for the inaugural Essence Of Rottnest exhibition, completed commissioned imagery for Christ Church Grammar School, the Riverview Hotel and the design and construction of a 4.1m Giant Sausage Roll for the 2020 Perth Festival’s Highway To Hell.
