Greetings and welcome to my website
My name is James and I'm a ceramic and wire artist, as well as a tutor. I make animals and teach others how to do so too. It's what I do and I can't imagine doing anything else.
2016 is going to be a significant year for my artistic development - I launched this website and I'm proud to say that in July I shall be exhibiting at Art in Action.
In short, it's going to be the year that I really say "hello world, this is what I do" and the plan is to use this website to candidly document my progress. There'll be highs and lows, trials and tribulations, hopefully jubilation and almost certainly artistic self-doubt/self-loathing.
I hope you enjoy my art and that my words inspire others to get creative too - there really is nothing like it!
Come and learn with me
