This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Encouraged as a child by the wealth of landscape and artist interpretation in the Bay Area and with such early experiences as Van Gogh's exhibition at De Young Museum in San Francisco, John Poon developed an appreciation of art at an early age.

After completing four years in the U.S. Coast Guard, he graduated from the Academy of Art College (AAC) in San Francisco, winning numerous student awards and scholarships. After graduation, he accepted the AAC's offer to remain at the college as an instructor of painting and drawing, and eventually served as Director of Foundations overseeing all Freshmen Drawing, and Color and Design classes.

Poon believes in the importance of an academic grounding in basic principles of art and adheres strongly to the classical premises of art education.  He values his teaching and administrative experiences as having increased his perspective as an educator and artist.

His professional awards and honors include "Best of Show" for The Society of Western Artists in 1999; Oil Painters of America Annual National Juried Exhibition in 1998, 1999, 2001 and 2002; Arts for the Parks Annual National Juried Exhibition in 1999 and 2001, including the "Landscape Award of Merit" in 1999; The Artist Magazine, finalist in the 1999 and 2001 Annual National Juried Competition; and the Sonoma Plein Air, "Artist Choice Award".

John Poon lives in Jackson, Wyoming with his wife Jenny, their five children, and Sven the cat.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jackson, Wyoming landscape painter John Poon was born in Hong Kong, of Chinese-Irish heritage in the early 1960s.  Poon first established his artistic reputation as a painter of California landscapes before moving to Wyoming.  He has won prizes from the Society of Western Artists and Art for the Parks.

Poon attended the Academy of Art College in San Francisco, where he now teaches. He first studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts, Oakland, then worked as an illustrator for several years before attending the San Francisco Academy, where he worked with, and was influenced by, Craig Nelson and Bill Maughan.

Poon's landscapes, painted out-of-doors and in the studio from studies, are in the illustrational painterly mode, reflecting his education and additional studies with artists like Scott Christensen and Wilson Hurley.

He is a member of the Northern California Painters Group and is also a faculty member at San Francisco's Academy of Art.
