John Betton


My interest in art and art history began aged about 11. I am part taught but mainly self taught. After A Level art and foundation courses at Newcastle Under Lyme college of art and private tuition from local artists Bernard Culshaw and Alston Emery I worked as a ceramic artist in the pottery industry for a while. After the decline of the pottery industry I worked in retail furniture until setting up my own business in furniture restoration until retirement. always keeping my art interest alive
