John Traynor spent his early years in Chester and Mendham, New Jersey, attending Delbarton School in Morristown. He pursued formal arts training at Paier College of Art in New Haven, Connecticut, and figure painting with Frank Mason at the Art Students League of New York. Traynor continued to study landscape painting in Vermont with Mr. Mason, drawing with Carroll N. Jones Jr. of Stowe, Vermont, and sculpture for one year with Brother Jerome Cox in Florence, Italy.
Traynor’s membership’s include the Salmagundi Club of New York, Hudson Valley Art Association, National Society of Mural Painters, and he is a Copley Master, at the Copley Society of Boston.
Painting outdoors on location is a primary source of inspiration for Traynor's landscapes. Smaller paintings are finished indoors, or used as studies for larger works painted in his studio. Portraits are painted on a commissioned basis in his studio or the home of the person or persons to be portrayed.
Traynor currently resides with his family in southern New Hampshire where he enjoys painting rural New England scenes.
