Born in Northern Ontario, Canada
John Rombough was born in the remote community of Sioux Lookout, in Ontario. At the age of three, John was adopted by a Prince Edward Island couple named respectively Carol and Lyall Rombough. John Rombough attributes his early interest in drawing and painting to being raised in a very giving and artistic environment.
As a young adult John began the search for his birth parents. He discovered his biological father, Alfred Catholique, living in the tiny community of Lutselk’e on the shores of Great Slave Lake in Canada’s pristine Northwest Territories. Warmly welcomed by all the Catholique family, John decided to move to the community in order to rediscover his cultural identity.
His paintings reflect the harmony of the Dene people and the natural world. His distinctive modern Native designs also encompass his own personal visions and strong connection with nature. His art communicates to all nations, through visual interpretation and brilliantly mixed colours, sending out a message of compassion and respect.
