 Deborah James


Since 2005 I have been painting in an impressionist style,

landscapes, waterscapes, gardens & rural scenes.

I use the beautiful surroundings of my garden studio, in a little corner

of East Northamptonshire as my inspiration.

Areas of outstanding natural beauty are on my doorstep,

including Rutland Water, the Cambridgeshire Fens, and the Norfolk coast.

I also paint in Portugal, particularly the dramatic coastline,

aquamarine seascapes & dappled the sunshine filled citrus & olive groves.



 My artistic journey:

1970 's  Art College : Graphic art and design 

1978 - 2005  Calligraphy with illustration

2005 - present & continuing : Impressionist paintings 




I use each of these mediums according to the subject, my mood or the location.

Using  pastels 'plein air' is a wonderfully direct way to paint, especially on a windy day!


Joyful painting

My return to painting and big brush work after years of detail has been such joy,

however moments when I place the last flicks of colour

or the final highlight in (hopefully) just the right place, is when... I still hold my breath.
