John Diehl was trained as a classical pianist before ever picking up a brush or palette knife. That love of music permeates his art. John uses landscapes as a means to express feeling rather than capture a scene. Among other emotions, he portrays "joy, peace, happiness, and solitude." John estimates there are 15,000 brushstrokes in each of his paintings. He attended the Rhode Island School of Design and the University of Florence in Italy, and currently lives in Bridgewater, Massachusetts.
