John Van Straalen discovered early in life that he had a natural gift for art. In 1975, John took a trip to Holland where he received a traditional European education in the arts, a sharing of knowledge by the older artists to their teen-age apprentices. In 1979, John returned to California and started a career as an illustrator. Today, John lives in Northern California with his wife and three children.
