James Roberts is a writer and artist working from an old rural market town in the Welsh Borders surrounded by rivers, woods, and high hills – his favourite things. It’s a place where the stars are still lantern bright at night.

His art and illustrations have featured in several galleries and exhibitions, as well as in theatres, magazines and books. He is currently working on a series of ink and salt drawings of ravens, owls and hawks which are available as prints on this website.

His non-fiction book, Two Lights, will be published by September Publishing in March 2023. It explores the decline in wild species over his lifetime through the prism of twilight. It is based on the essay, Chorus, first published by Little Toller Press. You can read it here. 

James is now researching his next book about flow states and landscapes, and our ever more fractured attention to the beauty that surrounds us.

James is represented by Robert Caskie.
