John "Cornbread" Anderson was raised on a farm in Lumpkin County, Georgia. Like most farm kids, he spent a lot of time exploring the fields and woods around him - never giving a thought to painting what he was surrounded by. It wasn't until 1995 that he picked up a paintbrush.
As a self taught artist, he deftly captures the charm and spirit of birds, quail, guinea hens, chicks, raccoons, rabbits, dogs, foxes, and many other animals of his home state. While urban sprawl wreaks havoc on natural places, Cornbread renders these animals in bright colors and energetic strokes.
His work can be found in many galleries and private collections throughout the South.
