Now a full time painter, James lives and works in Reigate, as well as having a studio in Spain. From the very first glance at his works, there is an impression of extraordinary vitality that radiates energy. His generous use of colour and a well known understanding of light can be seen to bathe scenes in a tranquil unreality, which we would sometimes wish to be real.
James has been exhibiting and selling his pictures over many years and had a successful one man show at the Grace Barrand Gallery, Bletchingly in 2003. His paintings are in many private collections here in the UK and also Spain and America.
