John's opening lines to me were "I like your paintings. I first saw one five years ago and it looked nothing like the subject but I love your colours!"
John's a resident of Cookham Dean and has lived here from 10 days old. "I love Cookham, it's home".
He went to Holy Trinity Primary and then as a boarder aged 7 to the Rudolf Steiner school in kings Langley. John worked for a while in TV production and photography and likes travel.
Now he's a craftsman, enjoying building his own business which makes very unusual highly sought after slate vases.
His only luxury is going skiing while his partner Jacqui goes to the Caribbean!
John's a real live wire and says "I'd like to see more eating and drinking places in Cookham. Another Indian restaurant between the Moor and the Rise would be good!"
If you think he looks familiar, you'd be right. John's grandfather was Stanley.
