About John

Learning how to draw shouldn't feel like pulling teeth!

You’re excited to learn how to draw, but you keep running into roadblocks:

- The YouTubers tend to be casual and skim the surface of what you need to know.

- The workshops aren’t taught at your pace or individual skill level.

- The books are one-size-fits-all, and don’t encourage artistic expression.

All you really want is a laid-back, methodical system for learning how to draw, right?

Hi, I’m John—the driving force behind Sharpened Artist.

I’m a member of the Portrait Society of America ( and a signature member of the Colored Pencil Society of America (

Anyone that knows me, knows my passion is passing on what I learn to others!
