James Lord

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.


"My work is inspired by journeys on bicycle, boat and on foot. It allows me to capture glimpses, views and moments in time that reflect the seasons with changing light and colours."
