He specialises in traditional and contemporary Ebru,the historically fascinating Turkish art of marbling/painting on thickened water. He captures the finished image on paper, fabric ceramics and other materials. James spent 5 years in Istanbul studying under Ebru master Kubilay Dincer.

James is currently developing luxury silk scarves, applying his Ebru art techniques and using digital media to create visually stunning wearable works of art.

Turkish Ebru was formally inscribed by UNESCO in 2014 as part of the Intangible cultural heritage of humanity. James is very proud to be playing his part in establishing an Ebru art renaissance, ensuring future generations know the art and adventure of painting on water.
