James studied at the Bournemouth & Poole College of Art & Design in the UK. Since then, for over 30 years, he has been working in the film and television industry and is the founder and managing director of Surefire Media, in Sydney Australia.
Painting has always been a constant meditative practice for James. Lately, art and art-making are providing an even greater flame of inspiration, offering solace, newfound comfort, and inner peace...
Recent works find inspiration and subject matter in rural Australia, with ideas of isolation, quietness, memories, solitude, and a momentary view - leaving, belonging, and returning.
James uses part representational techniques: painting mostly on wooden panels, with charcoal underdrawing, mixed media, wax mediums, and oil.
In essence, he loves to paint and can't stop thinking about it.
