James Roberts is an artist, writer and designer. He lives and works in an old stone house on the Welsh Borders where he is surrounded by rivers, woods, rooks and ravens – his favourite things. It’s a place where the stars are still lantern bright.
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 drawings of birds and trees which will be exhibited in late 2022.
As a writer James is currently working on a non-fiction book, Two Lights, which uses twilight as a prism to investigate the decline of nature and animal extinction. The book will be published by September Publishing in early 2023. It is based on his essay, Chorus, first published by Little Toller Press. You can read it here. His recent pamphlet Winged sold out in days and was featured in publications including The Times. A review of the pamphlet, which also includes his illustrations, can be found here. Winged will be republished in 2022.
James is represented by Robert Caskie.
