John Phillip Osborne is a dedicated painter-teacher of the principles of light which illuminate all fine paintings. He is a senior instructor at the Ridgewood Art Institute and teaches landscape, seascape, still life and portraiture to young people and adults, indoors and outdoors year round. Under his guidance, high school and college students are pursuing careers in the fine arts. His teaching and painting philosophy which reflects over thirty years experience is featured in American Artist and Palette Talk magazine cover articles.

As a result of his ongoing independent landscape studies, his paintings convey the direct study of nature in all its mysterious moods. His paintings have been commended with many Best in Show awards including the Hudson Valley Art Association's Gold Medal of Honor and numerous Best Light and Atmospheric Effect awards. Mr. Osborne is a recipient of the Hudson Valley Art Association's highest honor: Artist in Special Tribute. In addition, his principal painting instructors were Alban Albert and Arthur Maynard, who became the major influence in his philosophical approach to painting.

His paintings are exhibited internationally at the American embassies in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America. Nationally, he is represented by galleries from the east coast to the west. He is a cum laude graduate of Pratt Institute in New York.
