About the Artist
John Stahr’s passion for aviation was encouraged at an early age by his father, an aeronautical engineer. He is an Artist Member of the American Society of Aviation Artists (ASAA) and graduate of the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. John has been a professional artist, designer and illustrator since 1978.
As owner of Stahr Design and Artistic Aviation in Eugene, OR, his 25 plus years of creating large scale, high end vehicle graphic design has created an industry wide influence from coast to coast. He is now applying his artistic talent and expertise to creating outstanding custom aircraft visual design.
A pilot since 1991, John flies for fun, travel and to obtain first hand references for artwork in progress. Known in the fine art arena for his realistic style and dramatic cloudscapes, his original paintings are held in public and private collections throughout the United States. From these original paintings, John has self-published limited edition prints which can be obtained directly through this site.
His wife Patti is the
business guru and web
manager. Their passions
include flying, scuba
diving, photography, and
guiding their young son
through life’s adventures.
