This biography from the Archives of AskART:
John Fehringer is a contemporary regionalist artist best known for his images of Alaska and the Northwest, often with aviation or marine subjects. Fehringer arrived in Alaska in 1980 with a plan to stay only a few short weeks. As his ferry navigated along the Inside Passage, however, John has said he felt his plans were about to change. The deeper he journeyed into Alaska territory the more he knew that Alaska was about to become his new home. When the ferry docked in Juneau, John cashed in the return portion of his ticket and set out to find a job and a place to live.

He soon located a small trailer just outside of town near the Mendenhall Glacier and secured a labor job with one of the local freight companies. This amount of security was just enough to allow John to settle into the Alaska lifestyle and begin to paint. Working with an airbrush and opaque watercolor (gouache), John began developing a technique that would eventually become his signature style and established him as a well-known Alaska artist.

The success of his early paintings gave Fehringer the confidence to establish a conventional studio in downtown Juneau where he could spend more time working on his art. In 1984 he published "Inside Waters", titled as a tribute to the passage that had originally brought him to Alaska. This was the first in his series of limited edition fine art prints, and "Inside Waters" was well received. Since then his reputation has continued to grow, and his work is now found in collections around the US and Canada.
