He worked independently for private collectors and institutions. Then in 2003, he became the Director of Fine Art and Master Conservator for Norwood Promotional Products in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Their private collection, comprised of more than 4,000 works of art, was one of the most comprehensive collections of Americana produced during the 20th Century. The collection was in a dismal state.
Intervention by Banuelos came just in time or this national treasure would have been lost.
John's restorations have been evaluated by leading certified senior appraisers and conservators and described as “Excellent, some of the best I have ever seen”. This has been attributed to his gift
as a restorer and his exceptional ability as an artist to restore what another artist has created. See his artwork at www.painterofwesternlegends.com
