John Mosher grew up on a farm in Western Michigan, eventually attended Kendall College of Art and Design, in Grand Rapids, MI. There he studied painting and drawing, as well as worked on video and film projects outside of classes. He was awarded by his professors the "Studio Excellence Award" - the top award for a student at Kendall for Fine Arts - then attended the University of Cincinnati to pursue his MFA in Studio Art. The flexibility within the graduate program at the University of Cincinnati provided a situation where he could continue to paint, make prints, draw, as well as work in New Media mediums such as video, soundscapes, and immersive installation. At UC, Mosher's interest in education grew, and in his second year as a MFA candidate, he decided to also pursue a MA in Education simultaneously. After receiving his graduate degrees, Mosher immediately began teaching various courses at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. There he taught a mulititude of classes including multi-level drawing courses, and interactive media courses. It was there that he fell in love with web design and writing HTML and CSS. In 2011, he began teaching Web Design, Design Principles, Drawing, and Digital Photography courses at Salisbury University. Serving as the Living Learning Community Coordinator for art, he works closely with participating Freshman teaching classes and engaging in extracurricular activities such as studio visits, museum field trips, lasertag, and bonfires at the beach. Mosher currently has a studio in dowtown Salisbury, where he works feverishly on drawings, paintings, and collages, and exhibits them in local, regional, and national exhibitions. In addition, he is a freelance graphic and web designer, who works with local businesses, artists, and art galleries, as well as serves as the Exhibitions Manager for the Rehoboth Art League.
