Hi, my name is John D. Benson and I was born in Baltimore Maryland. I attended school in Baltimore County and studied at the Maryland Institute of Art. I have attended classes and workshops in Graz, Austria with Lou Rizzlo of North Western U. I have also had the privilege of studying with World Renowned Watercolor Artist ' Charles Reid in 2010 in the Baltics.

'John was in a class of mine on a Baltic Cruise. He is a delight to know, and his paintings capture whatever the subject matter is, beautifully. Anyone would be impressed looking at the paintings on his web site. John is a fine artist!'
I have the talent that allows me to capture the person in Portraiture. Knowing the person does not matter, I just seem to capture them in my art. My Heavenly Father has given me this skill and it has blessed many people. I thank Him for it, and hope I always use it to His glory.
