James Preston was born in Birmingham. His interest in art led him to study History of Art at the Derby College of Art.
Also a talented musician, James plays with his Rock band at any opportunity and has sketched the many places he has visited while touring Europe.
James is constantly inspired by the countryside that surrounds him and captures its beauty in each painting. This has led to James becoming one of the UK's most highly acclaimed landscape artists.
Over the last couple of years James has also produced a number of contemporary and semi-abstract pieces, which are being met with great enthusiasm by collectors of his work.
James' work has also been exhibited in the following galleries:
Outside The Square, Margate
Gallery Top, Rowsley
Tanaka Yaesu Gallery
Demontfort Fine Art
Duffield Art Gallery, Derbyshire
The Wentworth Gallery, Fort Lauderdale, USA
Wold Gallery, Bourton-on-the-Water
