Born on November 20, 1928, John Gaddis received a degree from Georgia Institute of Technology and worked as a civil engineer. In 1972, he gave up his career to devote himself full-time to his art. Having previously received training in watercolor painting by such Mississippi artists like Doris Nunn and Sam Gore, he now turned his full attention to his new pursuit and studied with John Pike in Mexico, Ireland, and Woodstock, New York; with Rex Brandt in Hawaii and California; with Tony Van Haslett, Edgar Whitney, and Robert E. Wood.
He painted landscapes, old barns or buildings, nudes and abstracts, and taught art classes to adults. Many of those artists still exhibit their work under the name of the Gaddis Group
