If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Drawing, Painting
I am...
from a long line of artists and artisans. I live and work in Lincolnshire where I make all my stretchers, canvasses, panels, oils, glues, waxes, varnishes and paints by hand.

I run my studio as an atelier and offer internships to 16-21 year olds My students are thrown into the full production of works of art, their presentation, marketing and sale. They get a good handle on how to run what is in effect small scale manufacturing, its disciplines and economics.
About my artwork
I have exhibited in London since 1995. I am represented by the art dealer Jonathan Cooper. In addition to producing still lifes I work on a wide variety of commissioned projects including portraiture and historic restoration. My paintings are scattered in private collections and places of worship across the globe and have been so described:

‘An art historian cannot help but sense in his works the distinguished genealogy of William Nicholson, Morandi and Fantin-Latour, and hear echoes that reach back to Luis Meléndez and beyond… James Gillick's paintings are silent works that speak.’ Gabriele Finaldi of the Museo del Prado
