His multidisciplinary practice spans drawing, sculpture, photography, installation, and place-based interventions. John received an MFA from the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis, an MA from Covenant Seminary, and a BA from the University of Virginia. Prior to the pandemic, Early taught a series of drawing workshops at the Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correctional Center through Saint Louis University’s Prison Arts and Education Program.
