In 1998 he volunteered as an artist-maker for Kneehigh theatre, this experience with community arts projects, inspired him to become a practicing visual artist.
Upon graduating James had his first exhibition in Falmouth in November 2000, and has since enjoyed a broad and varied career as an artist. His experiences range from exhibiting in galleries nationally and in Europe and producing both public and private commissions. To delivering community arts projects and environmental workshops. James also worked as an artist in education for twelve years.
In 2004 James worked with leading African artist El Anatsui, as project manager and assistant artist at the Eden Project, producing the Gateway to Africa, sculpture commission. And in 2010 he was invited to be artist in residence at the Lost Gardens of Heligan, creating the ‘Growth & decay’, charcoal sculpture.
