Paul James’ inimitable ability to capture the personality and energy of animals has seen him hone his reputation as one of our most charismatic artists.
Paul regularly visits galleries and exhibitions to explore the work of other artists, and is particularly drawn to the work of Salvador Dali, adding: “Nothing thrills me more than standing in front of an original. I’ve been lucky enough to visit his home at Cadeques and museum at Figueres in Spain.”
He is often inspired by the sights he encounters whilst travelling on his boat. He says: “I am lucky that I have a lifestyle which provides me with a constant supply of evocative images, and gives me the freedom to travel.”
Interestingly, Paul refuses to set himself a deadline as he believes this hinders his enthusiasm, explaining: “I hate working under pressure. I like to have the flexibility to choose what I want to paint, and when I want to paint it.”
