Candy James BA (Hons) Fine Art, is a professional, contemporary, environmental artist exploring psychological narratives surrounding place identity, inner and external landscapes. Her work is exhibited nationally and held in private collections both in the UK and internationally. She lives and works with her husband in South West England.
Candys distinctive personal style of abstract painting pays homage to the beauty of this area, specifically the Cotswold escarpment from where she collects natural earth pigments from the local landscape. From these pigments sourced from streams, soil, rock, limestone and charcoal from found camp fires she makes her own paints often adding diamond dust and 24ct gold leaf for her current series of work.
