Capturing Personality and Passion in Art.
"James and I have worked together for over three. James is the first designer I have worked with in 20 years that seeks understanding from the client and creates anything they desire. Beyond amazing design talent, his true gift is discovering what is really important to the client and capturing their personality, passion and life in his art. James seeks understanding of each individual and works tirelessly researching, sketching and designing until the perfect product is done. His technical ability is at the highest level and his personality is even better. Warmth, kindness and honesty are the core of how James operates. James is not just an amazing talent, he is a great person". Paul Wada
For the past 24 years I've been working as a illustrator, instructor and designer. I have been fortunate enough to have been able to learn numerous techniques in a variety of mediums and styles. This has given me a wide range of flexibility in meeting the needs of my clients and charitable causes.
I do have formal degrees in commercial design, illustration and fine art. However time and instruction under some amazing illustrators and designers have been the most rewarding experience an artist could ever hope for.
