Self-taught American painter and sculptor John St. John was born in Dallas, Texas, on February 24, 1929. He was raised in south Dallas and during his boyhood years traveled with his parents on sketching trips across Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Louisiana. He discovered his gift for the arts in grade school where he made his first drawings and was encouraged to develop his talent. St. John was largely self-taught except for a brief period of study at the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts School in the 1950s. He passed away on March 10, 2000.
