Johan Barkhuis is a native of The Netherlands. His formative years were spent living in various countries around the globe, before finally settling down in Montreal, QC. It was through this constant exposure to different people, places and cultures that Johan developed a very unique and creative perspective that translates into his work.

His style of expression was first represented in his College and University studies of fine arts and design, respectively. Over this period Johan honed his artistic skills and vision through various art forms such as painting, drawing, sculpting, photography and graphic design.

During his early career Johan worked first as a product designer and later as a graphics artist. Now fourteen years later he has finally had the opportunity to follow his true love, photography.

To Johan the ability to capture a moment in time and cherish a memory forever in an artistic and modern fashion is what drives this passion.
