Oil on Cork
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. He studied at The Glasgow School Of Art, before moving to Yorkshire. 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 and a timeless quality, allowing the viewers their own personal interpretation of his work.
