James Horton works largely in ink and oils but mixes this with a variety of other media. His work is highly detailed but the scratchy, loose style creates mood and motion. His drawings take inspiration from industrial landscapes, British wildlife and imaginary flights of fancy.
James constantly experiments, striving to find alternative techniques and master new skills in order to achieve different and better results. He is motivated by a never ending desire to learn. He creates work that has character and humour, and often results in images containing a slightly melancholy presence.
