For 17 years, as an ordained minister, John lived abroad working tirelessly to help the world become a better place…from feeding the hungry, providing medical attention & offering inspirational messages to children in over 35 nations. His past & present collide on canvas to create something much more than an image that hangs on a wall.

Residing in Florida with his wife, interior designer & artist, Molly Cones Beard, & two daughters, Zoe & Ayla, creativity is a family affair. From family weekends spent at the studio offering artist workshops to video production, jewelry making & apparel design.

For those who discover him, artist John Beard is a rare find, like the paintings he creates.

“Each work is unique, breathing life into the constant shapes, colors & ideas flowing through my mind; expressing something words cannot.”
