John was raised in many cities around the United States: Chicago, New Orleans, Oakland, California and St. John, Virgin Islands just to name a few. His love for creation began while working with a salvage company in Berkeley, California. There were many materials literally at his fingertips for him to explore.
John worked with Performance Structures Inc. in Oakland, California, where he joined the welding team which fabricated the Cloud Gate Sculpture which is now installed at Millennium Park in Chicago.
John’s other love is his vast vintage bike collection. He has been working on vintage bikes since he learned how to ride them.
John Faulkner lives and works in his studio in Bunsville, North Carolina with his loving wife and partner.
