John Musgrove grew up as an Air Force brat in places like Alexandria, Louisiana and Okinawa. He graduated from the University of Florida with a BA in Graphic Design and immediately moved to San Francisco. After working as a designer and illustrator for many years, he has returned to painting in the last few years.
In my cityscapes, I try to capture the fleeting drama and beauty of everyday experience. I'm drawn to compositions in which light, shadow, form and color interact to create both balance and surprise. Beyond that, I want each canvas to evoke a unique sense of place. Most of my San Francisco pictures feature neighborhood views off the beaten track
