A painter, muralist and etcher, John Law Walker was active in both California and Arizona and traveled throughout the country as doing murals.

He was born in Glasgow, Scotland and in the 1930s and 1940s, while living in Burbank, was actively painting in California where he was a student of Millard Sheets, Clarence Hinkle, and Frank Tolles Chamberlin.  He was a member of the California Watercolor Society, the Los Angeles Art Association, and the Santa Monica Art Association.

As a WPA mural artist, he did work in United States Post Offices in Pasadena and Lockhart, Texas, and the Treasury Department in Washington D.C.  He was also an art teacher at Glendale Junior College in Glendale, Arizona.
