Hampshire-based kite creator John Browning followed a career as a scientist and inventor but has always preserved a deep interest in the fine arts and the beauty of the natural world, and it was this interest which led him to take up making and flying kites.

Inspired by the work of French Artist, Claude Léa Comallonga and with his great interest in ethnic kites from around the world, John took to using natural materials to make his kites. He even makes his own paper from different plant materials which he then uses in his creations.

More examples of John’s work can be seen at
