John Trickett is considered to be one of the finest Labrador painters in the world. He has won the silver medal in the International Animal Painters competition in France and the Franklin Mint of America has published several of his paintings on limited edition plates. In 1996 John Trickett was featured in an article on leading dog artists in Gundogs magazine.
John Trickett’s exceptional ability is not limited to painting dogs – he also paints shooting scenes and landscapes. He had no formal training in art but is a natural colourist with a great eye for composition and a feel for atmosphere. John Trickett usually paints in oils on canvas.
Many limited edition prints have been published after his work and have rapidly become collector’s items. John Trickett has collectors all over the world and his works hang in America, Japan Australia and many European countries. John Trickett’s illustrated book “Reflections of the Countryside” was published in 2008.
