"John Horton's marine art captures today and yesterday - people, places and events as we know and remember them. While there are many artists who paint marine scenes, few have Horton's ability to delineate accurately the architecture of a ship.

Horton's portrayals range from the Pacific voyages of discovery when captains Cook and Vancouver first anchored off British Columbia to comtemporary settings on urban and rural waterfronts. He gives us glimpses of other parts of the world, of the military at work, of bustling ports and tranquil inlets."

~ Peter Vassilopoulous from John M. Horton, Mariner Artist
