"I was born in Texas and have lived here my whole life. I come from an intellectual family. Dad was an engineer and mom is a chemist/biologist/physicist. You can only imagine what sort of dinnertime conversations we had. I have one older brother who is currently at university studying maritime law and marine biology. It seems that a family such as mine would not be too excited about their child becoming an artist, but in reality they have been amazingly supportive. I didn't actually pick up a paint brush and paint until my first year at college. I was spending a lot of time with three incredibly talented people, Ardencia Hall, Ben Pascoe and Rob Kendall at their apartment which was known as Soho. Painting seemed very natural to me. As time went by I decided to buy some canvas and see what I could come up with. My early works are heavily inspired by Rene Magritte, the Belgian Surrealist." - John Jenkins
