James grew up on a farm in Africa where he started painting with watercolour 30 years ago. In 1999 he moved to Australia and made it his home. He immediately fell in love with the Australian Landscape. He has been exhibiting in galleries throughout Australia and Southern Africa for the last 13 years, and has won a number of awards.
James has developed a distinctive style with his subtle use of light, shade and warm colours that produce evocative landscapes that are unique to Australia. He shares his love of painting with others and besides teaching and exhibiting at Hamilton Island he teaches workshops in the Gold Coast and overseas.
