John Makin, Plymouth Artist
About John Makin
John Makin a local Plymouth artist was born on November 1947 in Devonport, Plymouth, and with the exception of a brief spell as an officer in the Merchant Navy, has lived and worked in Plymouth all his life.
After leaving school John began work in Devonport Dockyard, and it was here he became a fully indetured coppersmith, moving on to become a Draughtsman in the Dockyard, then becoming a member of the Nuclear Refuelling Team, later moving on to work for many years at HMS Raleigh.
The first art print release in 1990 of John’s work was of the Plymouth Pier, shown in all its former glory and this print still sells well today, along with many of his other well known works to-date of Plymouth past and present.
John’s works have been exhibted in many galleries and sites in and around Plymouth, including the Plymouth Museum and Art Gallery where he received commendations for two of his exhibited works, Plymouth Pier, and in my bedroom.
