Biography John Skelton
Skelton worked initially in advertising as Art Director and illustrator of books, most of them educational. From 1975 onwards he worked full-time as a painter. He had 25 one man shows in Dublin; two in Belfast, one in Los Angeles and one in the Mystic Seaport Museum in Connecticut. Up to the late 1980s, John was a frequent exhibitor in the annual Royal Hibernian Academy shows in Dublin. In recent years, however, his work was in such demand that he contributed to these less often. During the 1970s and earlier 1980s he earned a reputation as a gifted teacher and lecturer in the National College of Art and Design in Dublin.
