John Lackey

Bio for 2020

John is a painter, printmaker, and writer of poems, songs and fiction.

Reason for signing up:

I lost my public studio and gallery due to the pandemic, which is fine, I can work at home, but the transition was very hard work and left me without a place to paint for a while. That, plus the fact that the novel I have been working on for ten years has become a little cumbersome to keep up with (not to mention everything being on fire), has forced my flow into unexpected bursts of poetry, mostly during tri-weekly bouts of insomnia. I’m ready.
