Having completed his studies by the time he was twenty years old, Traynor was determined to become a professional artist. As an unknown artist, he started selling his paintings at outdoor art shows where he was able to meet collectors in person. This exposure opened opportunities for him with art galleries.

A skilled painter of every genre –– landscape, still life, and portraiture –– Traynor combines a blend of realism and atmospheric impressionism which sets his work apart from others. Many people can recognize a “Traynor painting” by its brush strokes and unique feeling. Part of his success is his ability to connect emotionally with others through his work.

Traynor is inspired by what he sees around him, whether it’s flowers from his garden, people in his life, a landscape or a seascape. His interpretation of subject matter, his use of light and atmospheric effect, is influenced by many of the old master paintings. A richness and fullness to his work that is “old world” yet contemporary is the mark of his unique style.

John’s works are on display in several galleries across North America.
