James Naughton is one of the UK's leading contemporary landscape painters and has exhibited extensively in London and across the country. He pursued his childhood love of art to achieve a first class honors degree from the Metropolitan University of Leeds in 1994, and since then has enjoyed an extraordinary career and has become one of Britain's most accomplished and sought after landscape painters. His work emerges from three preoccupations, light, landscape and the nature of paint, these combine to result in paintings that link tradition and a modern visual experience.Naughton has exhibited widely in the UK and at numerous acclaimed international Art Fairs. His personal interest in the art of Thomas Moran led to an ambitious Arts Council funded project and included a two week road trip in Yellowstone, National Park, The Teton Range and Green River(Wyoming USA). The project culminated in an extensive exhibition in the public art gallery of his home town Bolton Lancashire where he has a studio.
He has exhibited at Panter & Hall London, Beckstones Art Gallery Cumbria, Helmsley Galleries Yorkshire, Fairfax Gallery Chelsea amongst others.
