   John Warr began his art career in 1980 concentrating mainly on wildlife. Over the next ten years Warr worked with many wildlife organizations along with winning many awards including the 1988-1989 Alabama Duck Stamp competition. Warr grew up surrounded by the beauty of his beloved Guntersville Lake area of rural Northeastern Alabama. He found the beauty of Lake Guntersville and it's bounty of wildlife. He grew to love the outdoors and it's natural beauty. When John began drawing, at the age of twenty-one, he created drawings of the river wildlife, mainly waterfowl. When John created his first color works, about four years later, river wildlife remained his primary interest. In 1989 Warr accidentally ventured into the field of Civil War art. With his interest in the Civil War and some photos from Civil War reenactments, he decided to do a  scene showing a group of Confederate soldiers marching across a field while two Whitetail Deer watch from a distance. With no intentions of printing the piece, Warr carried it to a few shows and the response was unbelievable. Over the last twenty years Warr has spent most of his time painting Civil War scenes, but he hasn't completely given up on his wildlife. In many of his major pieces, the scenes have wildlife as the subject or somewhere in the background. He has also expanded his subject interest for his original paintings to Western and Delta Blues. Warr resides in rural Northern Alabama, Scottsboro, with his wife Tammy and three daughters Lauren, Lindsey, Laney, and grandson Ethan. There he owns and  operates Warr Art Gallery and Custom Frame Shop. John recently joined Global Outfitters, a Hunting, Fishing, and Shooting Travel Adventure Site and Wildlife Art Gallery as their Art Director.
