John Kearns / Kearns & Kang
Hometown: Herndon, VA
John Kearns is a regional painter of Virginia landscapes. His acrylic paintings are created on either canvas or barn wood, which is quite durable and weather resistant so they’re suitable for hanging outdoors. The acrylic paint sinks into the wood so the image never weathers or fades.
He also paints studies of animals and nature on barn wood. A local furniture maker does all his frames.
John is an award winning muralist who worked in home styling before he started creating for shows. His work has appeared in national and regional magazines He collaborated with designers Chong Kang and Chris McClelland to produce a design book, “Journey Into Design”.
