We are proud to be hosting a summer exhibition featuring a expansive collection of work by James. The exhibition is taking place in two locations, Finchingfield (at Wonky Wheel gallery) and at the Moot Hall in Maldon, Essex.

At Wonky Wheel you will find original work by James featuring landmarks from around the world including The Empire State Building, Notre Dame and Sydney Opera House. Prints are also available in the gallery.

We will also have on display the signed Tom Hanks drawing.

Also an extra special surprise to be revealed....watch this space :)

At The Moot Hall on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (11-5) you will find James present to answer any questions you may have about his work, along with a selection of prints for sale and some typewriters on display.
 

Workshops will also be running at Wonky Wheel in July 2022 (£40 per person / £50 per family) where James will be teaching you how to create your own typewriter art. Book your place on this one of kind workshop by clicking here

About James - 

We are almost 12 months on from your Summer Exhibition here at Wonky Wheel in 2021. What do you find most challenging about been a full-time artist?

The most challenging part of being a full-time artist is knowing when to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to a project. I am very lucky to have found myself in a position where I am asked regularly to create new drawings privately or commercially, and if that project excites me, I can’t help but say yes. However, time management is still very much a work in progress. One challenge of typewriter art is that it difficult to estimate how long a project might take to type. Some subjects are more challenging to type and therefore demand more of my time, but being able to put an exact number on how many days, weeks or sometimes months of my time that may require can sometimes be troublesome and on many an occasion, overtime into weekends to get a project complete is never out of the ordinary for me. I can’t complain, because I still love my job!
