This biography from the Archives of AskART:
John A. Fernie (1919 - 2001)

An illustrator for major magazines such as the Saturday Evening  Post, he also designed Broadway theater posters and painted landscape and genre scenes in Vermont and Maine.

John A. Fernie was born in Dundee, Scotland on December 17, 1919.  He studied art at Manchester University, England, including a short period at Glasgow University which was interrupted by World War 2, where he served 5 1/2 years as a pilot in the Royal Air Force.

 From 1946 on, he provided illustrations for magazines and commercial accounts in Toronto, Canada, and continued on in New York City in 1948.  Fernie and his wife moved to Westport, Connecticut in 1950, while he maintained a New York City studio with a partner.  Some of their accounts included Revlon, Cheseborough Ponds, 711 Cosmetics, and Pepsi-Cola.  He also did illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post and Cosmopolitan magazine, among many others.  He also did paintings for Broadway theater posters Bye-Bye Birdie, Baker Street and the Ice Capades.

In 1996, the family moved to Vermont and Fernie began painting Vermont scenes besides his commercial artwork and illustration in New York City.   Later, he added Maine coastal and genre scenes after moving to Kennebunkport in 1980.

His work has been shown in many exhibitions, including at the Salmagundi Club and American Artists Professional League in New York City and Southern Vermont Art Center, Hopkins Center, Stratton Arts Festival, Hudson Valley, to name a few.

 John A. Fernie died in 2001.
