Art and railways have always been major influences in John Austin's life. These two factors,
combined with several years' experience of professional lighting design, become very apparent
in his paintings. "Light is the most important ingredient in any picture", John says.
As a result of the drama, passion and outstanding technical detail which
have become recognized features of his very distinctive style, John is now an honorary Fellow of the Guild of Railway
Artists, and has won the Guild of Railway Artists Picture of the Year award 16 times in the last 17 years.
