Biography from Valley Fine Art:
John Encinas was born near Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1949.  Self-taught, he started painting at the age of fifteen and began working as a full-time professional artist in 1975.  He prefers painting directly from various subjects and describes his technique as impressionistic realism.

Encinias’ many exhibitions include consecutive showings at the National Academy of Western Art/Prix de West Exhibition since 1985; a one-man show at the Frye Museum in Seattle, Washington in 1991; and a one-man show at the Birger Sandzen Memorial Gallery in 2000.

His work has also been featured in shows at the National Wildlife Art Museum in Jackson, Wyoming; the Albuquerque Museum in New Mexico; the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma; the Loveland Museum in Colorado; and is currently (2010) being exhibited at the American Embassy in Rome, Italy.

His paintings are in numerous private and corporate collections: Millicent Rogers museum in Taos, New Mexico; Frye Museum in Seattle, Washington; United Missouri Bank in Kansas City; and U.S. West Corporate Collection in Denver, Colorado.

Some publications that have featured his works are Masterworks of Impressionism, a book published in 1985; Southwest Art 1987 and 2002; Art of the West 1988, Persimmon Hill 1997 and 2002; American Artist Magazine 1998; Who’s Who in American Art 2000; and Color, an American Artist Publication 2001.
