Born and raised in Sheffield, James studied illustration at Wolverhampton University after a childhood spent sketching and painting. He went on to have a long career as an in-house illustrator for several greeting card publishers, including Hallmark cards, working on branded characters and also on original illustration. Over the years, this taught him to develop many different styles and to work in many different media.
Although a large part of James‘ illustrations are done digitally now, he still likes to do line-art in his sketchpad and get the paints out and make marks.
