James is very passionate about his work and loves nothing more than to reminisce about some of the classic car project he has worked on in the past. With a recent focus on bringing classic cars to life by painting them in oils on canvas (see his Classic Car Gallery for some examples). James was delighted to have been interviewed and featured by the team at classicclassics.co.uk. A shared passion for cars and appreciation for beautiful art work makes for a wonderful collaboration. James would like to wish the Lincolnshire based classic car enthusiasts all the best with the launch of their new website classicclassics.co.uk.
