John Petrey

Lives in Chattanooga

Since 1981, John Petrey been creating art that stirs the emotions of the viewer. As he has grown as an artist, his work has become more of an expression of his soul.

Images in nature, art, and new technology all influence him. John is especially intrigued by the moments in life that catch his eye, random ideas that erupt in his mind, and words people say that just hang in the air.

John is constantly re-formulating the process of his creative thinking. He’ll observe something that strikes a chord with him, tuck it away in his mind, and later it becomes an inspiration. As a result, his art can be lighthearted and whimsical or deeply symbolic.

Imagination is the most powerful tool humans possess.
