James Mackenzie is a widely exhibited artist with a rapidly growing UK and international reputation. His expressionist 'Skyscapes' are particularly sought after and he shares their stage by stage development with his followers on Twitter.
He gained his Fine Art (Hons) Degree at Hertfordshire University in 2000. After his Degree he worked as a portrait Artist for a number of years before deciding to study for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education in Art and Design.
This was a real journey of discovery and, over the last few years, James has discovered the style about which he is most passionate, what he describes as a ‘natural’ style of painting. This ‘natural’ almost spontaneous painting style allows his subconscious to take hold and he is able to create landscapes, which previously existed only as memories or unconscious recollection.
James has now left the teaching profession to focus wholly on his Art career and he now creates artwork daily in his studio in Essex.
His 'Desolate Blue' series of paintings in this new style are, he feels, the start of a new and exciting journey.
