John Gates

With a BFA in Fine Art, emphasis in watercolor, and over thirty years of experience, Mr. Gates has woven aspects of his eclectic careers in education, the US Air Force, and the Intelligence Community into his artwork. He often paints with watercolor in a style reminiscent of mosaics or stained glass. He does this to present the idea that, like those works made from broken pieces of clay or glass, even if a person is broken by loss or tragedy, he or she can, with hard work and support, be ?put back together? into something beautiful.
