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 and offering inspirational messages to children in over 35 nations. His past and 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 and artist, Molly Cones Beard, and two daughters, Zoe and Ayla, creativity is a family affair. From family weekends spent at the studio offering artist workshops to video production, jewelry making and apparel design.
For those who discover him, artist John Beard is a rare find, like the paintings he creates.
