John C. Traynor


John C. Traynor

John C. Traynor pursued formal art training at the Paier College of Art in New Haven, and figure painting with Frank Mason at the Art Students League of New York. Traynor continued to study landscape painting in Vermont with Mr. Mason, drawing with Carroll N. Jones, Jr., of Stowe, Vermont, and sculpture with Brother Jerome Cox in Florence, Italy.

Traynor's style is reminiscent of some of the 19th century French painters and the Dutch Masters. He uses soft and hard edges selectively to create a sense that moisture fills the air surrounding the objects he paints. Traynor is the recipient of over two hundred awards of merit for his art, including the Frank Dumont Memorial Award for best light and atmospheric effect in a painting. His work is enjoyed in numerous private, public, and museum collections in the United States.
