James Green is a printmaker, living in Sheffield.
He graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 1995 with a degree in Fine Art having specialized in photography. It took fifteen years before he finally took the plunge and worked full time as a printmaker.
James specialises in linocuts and screen-prints. His subjects range from landscapes to UK wildlife to surreal donkey compositions and larger abstract pieces. He loves how direct and bold print can be, and how its always a challenge to work within its limitations.
In 2006 James was shortlisted for the International Small Print Competition and took part in the Portrait Artist Of The Year (SKY) TV series in 2013. He also took part in Landscape Artist of the Year (SKY Arts) in 2015.
Outside of his personal work he has created commissions for Paul Smith Menswear, The Hepworth Wakefield, Sheffield Children’s Festival, The Folk Forest music festival and Domino Records, among others.
