About The Artist
A leading contemporary animal and landscape realist painter – Paul is world renowned for the skill and craftsmanship of his artwork. He dedicates himself to each piece with passion. Freedom is his forte and therefore his work is always fresh and current.
Currently resident in Southern Ireland, he was born and grew up in Leicestershire. His artistic and musical abilities became apparent at an early age. Although essentially self-taught he did attend art College, at the insistence of his teachers to study graphic design. Paul however, did not feel it was necessarily the right path to take and this proved to be the case, so being something of a non- conformist he made the decision not to complete the course. Instead he started to paint; at first mostly mechanical subjects such as, classic cars and aircraft, and was a one-time member of the ‘Guild of motoring artists’. He also made something of a living taking commissions to paint portraits of peoples pet dogs and cats.

Our Collector Stories
“I’ve always thought that owning one of Paul’s pieces is an experience that keeps giving. All the animals have real story, you can make up your own stories and then hidden in the picture are lots of even more stories. ‘Hillary’ still makes me smile every morning I leave to go to work!”
“I would highly recommend the Paul James Gallery to friends and acquaintances. As official distributors, the gallery holds an extensive collection of work by Paul James. I can be confident of the authentication of every art piece that I purchase from them. The guidance and support provided by Andreea was exceptional. She spent time understanding my needs and exceeded all expectations.”
“I started collecting Paul James pieces almost 2 years ago now and Andreea has helped me build my collection to 11... I took my two girls to the Paul James Gallery event last month and they also fell in love with all the animals on display, so much so, my 7 year old daughter walked around the gallery with Andreea and picked out a piece which she now calls ‘Brownie’ after her love of brownies, the artwork commonly known as ‘Browned Off’.”
David & SarahTamworth
“We have been collecting Paul James’ art for more than 15 years and we have just purchased our 22nd piece… A visit to the gallery in Daventry and a chance to meet Andreea, Paul C and the rest of the team really added to the experience of purchasing a new Paul James painting. Their input, guidance and service from start to finish was simply exceptional. More recently, we had a chance to meet Paul and his wife, Linda, during the launch of his latest piece and thoroughly enjoyed talking to them about his work over the past number of years.”
