James Winrow Head
Artist James Winrow

James grew up at the foot of the South Downs in Sussex where he roamed the chalk hills bird watching, drawing, exploring and fishing. Professionally trained as a graphic designer and photographer, the whisper of the wild was never faraway, so after a stint running a design studio he took a much needed sabbatical, getting his hands in the dirt working on farms around the UK and living in Grizzly bear country in Northern British Columbia. 

Returning to the UK he worked for two years leading nature awareness and bushcraft courses for children and adults, immersed in the rich Devon countryside. This ongoing rewilding of heart and mind led him to unearth the first love of his life, drawing the natural world. 

Discovering the deep connection between the observer and the observed, he now loves to share this magic with others, drawing them deeper into nature. 

His work is sold in various shops in the UK and USA and is also held in private collections in both countries. He is married with four children and lives tucked away in a wooded valley just outside Lyme Regis, surrounded by bird song.
