James Biggers is never satisfied painting the same subject in the same way. He forced himself to learn and see more while constantly searching for inspirations and techniques to give his paintings essence. “I was a kid who stayed in at recess to work on my drawings.” James was starting to learn the skills that would be the journey of his life.
Biggers discovered, “At some point you have to put something of yourself into your work, without this element you will never have a great painting. Design and the subject may attract people to your painting, heart is what keeps them there.” The best way to capture the heart of a subject is to paint from life and to continually search for new subject matter. Extensive travel has fed this desire.
