James exhibits at the Chelsea Flower Show, London each May where, in 2013, he was awarded the Director General’s Award for the best stand. He also holds a solo exhibition in the autumn in London, hosted by the Eton Contemporary Fine Art Gallery. He has exhibited in Ootmarsum, Holland, and in Cebu and Manila, Philippines. He has a large body of work on permanent display at Singapore’s iconic Gardens by the Bay which include a 6m high Wyvern on a tree, 3 larger than life size galloping thoroughbreds, and many other pieces aside from this.
In 2015, James was commissioned to make a sculpture of a family of Philippine Eagles, the regal national bird of the Philippines, for the culturally important Flying Theatre of Enchanted Kingdom, the country’s renowned amusement park.
He has started a program called 80,000 trees which aims to plant 80,000 trees over the course of the next 15 years while building relationships with the tenants and claimants of the land and DENR (Department of Environment and Natural Resources) to assist him in nurturing the seedlings to full growth. www.facebook.com/80000trees/
Aside from planting trees, James has started several community projects which are close to his heart. Bantayan Crafts is one such project which aims to empower wives of fishermen by training and mentoring them in a tourist related crafts and souvenir enterprise.
James has also been featured on the Telegraph, the Sunday Times and CNN to name a few. You can see his beautiful driftwood sculptures when you visit.
