Chester County, PA native John Pompeo is a self-taught artist, “born with a crayon in my hand”. However he wasn’t always a painter. He initially gravitated toward science, earning a BS degree in Biology. But ten years in the Pharmaceutical industry as a biochemist left him feeling lost and longing to re-connect with the artist that had always been there, patiently waiting to re-emerge. In 2001 he decided to make a drastic career change and started a mural business, eventually creating smaller works on canvas. The events of 9/11 occurred after only a month into the career change, serving to strengthen his resolve and steer him in the direction of natural and peaceful subject matter.
Influences range from contemporary plein- air artists to early-20th century American Impressionists. John exhibits his works at art shows and festivals from VA to CT. Some exhibitions of note . . .
