Over the last dozen or so years James has worked as a professional artist, contributing to numerous exhibitions in London and beyond. He has held regular solo shows at 54 The Gallery in Mayfair and enjoyed some commercial success. James’ paintings are held in corporate, public and private collections in the UK and overseas.
After an early career in the Royal Air Force, a Cranfield MBA, and time spent in management consulting and professional services marketing, James now combines his academic interests and business orientation with painting. He has completed a number of courses from an art foundation at the Slade to both graduate and postgraduate fine art degrees at the University of Hertfordshire. He has attended the Faculdade de Belas-Artes of the University of Lisbon and has taken a further degree specializing in arts management. In recent times his interests have shifted towards research in the History of Art at the University of Buckingham where he has completed a research degree focussing on Harold Gilman’s Judgement of Spencer Gore’s Letchworth Paintings. He has also recently written a book on Spencer Gore’s Letters to John Doman Turner 1908-1913. Currently, also at the University of Buckingham, he is researching aspects of Howard Hodgkin’s Venice.
