John Turkle


John graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in design. He joined Big Picture in 2011 and immediately became indispensable. His education, talent, and skill sets were a perfect match for delivering high-quality services to our customers. He is truly a master craftsman and artist at his work. He is also easy to work with and very modest. It’s not unusual for a customer to become emotional over the fine work he does with photo restorations. He also has a very keen eye when color-matching fine art to get the best possible reproductions possible.
