Ashley James

I'm a creative and flexible graphic designer with over 25 years of experience helping local authorities, companies and charities to promote themselves effectively. My expertise includes all aspects of design from flyers, leaflets, logos, large scale graphics, car livery and digital illustration. Highly skilled in Adobe Creative Suite (Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop), I also offer strong cartographic expertise following four years with the Ordnance Survey. I have good organisational skills for multi-tasking on projects, meeting budgets and deadlines.

My ceramic work is influenced by an interest in the natural world, and a love of farm life and the surrounding countryside. I strive hard to capture something quirky and unique in each piece I create, and I feel that my work reflects my personality. It’s important to me that each piece tells its own narrative. All my pieces are hand-built from stoneware clays.

I have exhibited and sold work at Marwell Zoological Park summer exhibitions, IBM Hursley House, Portsmouth Museum, Curdridge Show and other local galleries. Open Exhibitions in 2018 at Sherfield School, Southampton Art Gallery, St Barbe Musuem & Art Gallery, National Trust (Mottisfont).

Exhibiting at:
New Forest Open Art, 13 July - 7 Sept 2019
Alresford Arts Festival, 5 - 7 October 2019
