Born and raised in Scotland, James couldn't fail to have his creative talents set alight. From the raw, rugged countryside surrounding his native Glasgow to the wealth of architecture and galleries, James took it all in and his passion for art flourished.
Whilst training as a Carpet Designer he studied at The Glasgow School Of Art, before moving to England to join one of the country's largest carpet manufacturers in Yorkshire. Here he carved out a very successful career, eventually becoming the Studio Manager.
Living close to the Pennines and with the Yorkshire Dales also on his doorstep his love of painting took off.
Using the light and atmosphere of the landscape, the subtle use of colour and texture give his paintings a contemporary look, which retains a timeless quality, allowing the viewers their own personal interpretation of his work.
