James was born in 1986 and lives in East Yorkshire. He lives there with his wife and two children, who all engage with his “madness” (or just put up with it), but they are truly an inspiration in his life and art.
James is a self-taught artist, who transformed a childhood hobby into a love and passion after growing up with many magical tales by the likes of Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake, and in his later years, the fantastical worlds of Middle Earth and Hogwarts.
He is very versatile and his style of work appeals to a wide range of ages from children's picture books to young fiction.
James‘ illustrations are unique, quirky and full of life, and he uses his imagination and creativity to bring a picture to life and target the intended audience.
