John P. Lasater IV worked for 13 years as a designer, illustrator and art director with a division of Hallmark Cards, so it was a natural transition to begin creating meaningful images with paint. Looking at his artwork, you will hopefully sense goodness, simplicity, peace, honesty and intrigue. John believes everything points to our One God, Who is the source of all things, and Who is in all, through all, and to all.

Faith in God, respect for humanity,
and enjoyment of life should
be the theme of my very best paintings.
I want my work to be a celebration.
