James is a Chesterfield based artist, who’s background is as a landscape architect and environmental designer. However his love lays towards the artistic side of his skills and when time allows he immerses himself in his paintings, often until the early hours of the morning! His scientific and architectural background heavily influences his painting and his subjects which often include landmark buildings, streets and even just rooflines. His interest is more often in the structure and design of a building than simply it’s ascetic qualities. Alongside this his environmental side has left him with a strong interest in botanical and landscape studies. Often his approach centres around the ways people interact with art and design in both natural and urban settings. Self-taught, he mixes many skills and influences to create unique and charming artworks that reflect the character of the subject in question.
