“The Garden” Mt Eden’s news magazine recently profiled long time senior lecturer John Horner.
John has been at Whitecliffe since the 1980s and was invaluable in the early establishment of the school. The late co-founder Greg Whitecliffe often commented that without John Horner’s input, guidance and friendship the school would not have been the success it had become.
John’s art works have always been displayed around Whitecliffe from brightening up the dark walls at the old Grafton Road campus to enhancing the new Balfour Road campus.
‘John still paints people with a particular spirit, depicting movement in a way that suggests the moments before and after the image that you see.’
