A photograph of Quiet on location at the Des Moines River.

John Preston earned his BFA from Maharishi International University in Fairfield, Iowa.  Although he is originally from the East Coast, he was inspired by the weather and the landscape of the Midwest during his time in Fairfield and he decided to stay in Iowa.  John has now been painting the Iowa landscape for more than thirty years.  His work is held in many collections, including Iowa State University and John Deere.  In addition to working with pastels, John also paints with oils and watercolors and he teaches ongoing watercolor classes at the Fairfield Art Association.
