He grew up in Sydney, Australia, and studied Visual Communications at the University of Technology. In kindergarten he remembers devising the most complex image he could think of, refusing to move on to any other activity, and instead rendering a complex drawing of a city of houses including every detail, every person, and every spider web between every house. He continues to make drawing the primary focus of his day.
Major projects in his diverse career include creating a large-scale mosaic in a train station for the MTA in New York and an interactive children’s exhibition based on books James created with Lonely Planet.
