John Knapp-Fisher 'My Life - all the little things
John Knapp Fisher 'My Life - all the little things (BOOK)
An illustrated autobiography with beautiful artwork and photographs.
In the near fifty years since John Knapp-Fisher opened his studio gallery on the crossroads at Croesgoch on the St David's peninsula of Pembrokeshire he has built and developed a huge following.
Trevigan Cottage has always been a memorably hospitable place for friends with epic occasions of serious conversation as well as hilarious conviviality.
Added to that has been the growing circle of those who perhaps first as holiday visitors to the gallery have found a ready welcome from the working artist and seen the strength of his work. They have found a man of craggy determination with commitment to his painting like a rock at the centre of his being. They have found in John a prevailing presence. He has spent so much time out in the landscape observing, drawing, sketching, painting in all the weathers of which Pembrokeshire is capable. His understanding of the dark and the light, the sea and its craft, the harbours, the fields and mountains, the farms and chapels and cottages set in their distinctive horizons has made him the visual voice of this most compelling place.
