Paul James Artist

Original paintings by Paul James

Paul James was born in Leicester in 1961. He had been painting and playing music since he was a young boy. His first love has always been art and, although James was accepted at art college, within a year he rebelled against what he felt was a far too restrictive regime.

Paul then looked to a career in music and, having been clasically trained for the piano, became a professional keyboard player. After a few years as a musician, a motor trader and in other forms of self employment, in 1985 he decided to return to painting and to make a living as a professional artist. He concentrated initially on commissioned animal portraits so that he could find time to create more speculative work in landscapes, wildlife, motoring and aviation.

Over the past few years, Paul James has only accepted a few commissions and has concentrated on developing his style and expertise in both wildlife and landscapes.

Paul James derives great inspiration from his local Leicestershire scenery, often highlighting his talent as a wildlife artist by featuring either sheep or cattle. His originals sell at prices from £1,500 to £10,000. They range from rural scenes depicting the English countryside, through the marine life of blue whales and dolphins, to gorillas and the Siberian tigers. His work has been published in the form of greeting cards and also featured on television.
