Alexander’s first teacher was Haida Artist, Don Yeomans. The two artists met through Don Yeoman's first art dealer, Bud Mintz, whose daughter John was dating at the time and later married.
John Alexander later studied Fine Art at Langara College in Vancouver, BC where he learned sketching and painting.

John became quite close with Phil, as he lived with and eventually cared for him until he passed in 2016.
