James Lord was born on the Isle of Wight and grew up in Yarmouth where much off his childhood was spent sailing on the River Yar and swimming off Sandhard Beach. After gaining an BA Hons degree at London College of Printing he worked as a graphic designer in London for over 10 years. James returned to live on the Island in 2002 and renovated a 17th Century farmhouse near Gatcombe where his studio is sited in a converted barn.
James Lord’s work is inspired by journeys by bicycle, boat and on foot. It captures glimpses, views and moments in time that reflect the seasons with changing light and colours. Prints have a screen printed style, bold block colours, line drawn details and batik like textures.
