Watercolor and Ink Artwork
A little bit about me.
I had never considered becoming an illustrator, I wanted to be a knitwear designer, well, actually I wanted to be a veterinary surgeon, but, you know...science.
Don't get me wrong, I was quite good at the science subjects at school but it was the maths that let me down, not basic maths, that's easy, but put bonding chemicals equations in front of me and I get a little bit faint.
So I went down the art and design route, with and avid interest in photography and fine art.
My father, Gwyne Howell James, is also a writer and artist, and although I didn't take a great deal of inspiration from his own art, growing up with art (also music and books in vast amounts) all around was inspiring.
I now live in a remote village in Pembrokeshire, I have a large wild garden to tend, I work as a weaver, part time, and the rest of the time is filled with painting commissions and developing Hare and Snail.
