FishHawk, FL Area Artist John Thomas Dispennette
John Dispennette grew up in the area that is now known as Fishhawk, FL. He spent his summers and weekends traipsing through the the Alafia River swamp exploring and learning about the natural world. His brother Billy, along with his best friends Robby and Kyle have more stories about the Alafia then they can possibly remember.
John began his path in art very early by redrawing every cartoon character in the Sunday Comics. He would spend hours on end doing this and enjoyed every minute of it.
He sold his first piece of art to a customer when he was 17. Now John has sold lots of art across the nation and locally.
Some of his murals include Rick's Custom Meats in Lithia, FL and Dallas Bull bar in Tampa, FL.
Currently John does a combination of murals, canvas art, prints and design work, along with building Websites and APPS. In 2016 John became a Certified Web Developer from the University of Central FL.
