John S. Gore
Myrtle Beach, SC
Beginning his art career with realistic watercolors and low country pen and ink drawings, John has received many awards over the years. One of his pen and ink drawings is in the Franklin G. Burroughs - Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum's Permanent Collection. As an interior designer and owner of B. Graham Interiors, his artistic creations have moved to more impressionistic and contemporary acrylics on a larger scale. He often incorporates his paintings into his design projects as focal points that solidify a room's creation. As an interior designer and artist, he feels that the painting must speak and evoke a mood to be successful.
