John Beach

Staines, Middlesex, England


That one word is perhaps the best to use when describing the work of John Beach. His highly illustrative works remind me of the best of English illustrations. They bring back memories of classic children’s book, treasured as much for their pictures as for their stories.

These pieces tell their own stories. Stories of squirrels and baby birds. Stories of a fox and owl. Just what are they up to? Each animal a character with things to say. You look at these wonderful paintings and have to speculate on the stories to be told.
