John E. Huisman

John is a native of the Twin Cities, leaving for a life in the woods of Northern Minnesota as a young man to write and draw and spend time in the wilderness.

He met his wife and together they built a log home in the woods and raised 4 children there. He eventually became one of the leading custom home builders in the Ely Minnesota area.

He was always sketching, drawing and painting, occasionally one of his ideas would end up on a custom carved entry door for one of his homes.

30 years later he rekindled an energy for the art that he had partially sidelined for a few decades. Kids now graduated, he and his wife, Claire, bought a home in the Twin Cities where he has been finding success showing in group shows and independently.

He still runs his home building business in Ely, living part-time in the cities and part-time around the Northern Minnesota lakes, where he pursues his artwork, wood carving, architectural drawing, and general contracting.
