Wonky Wheel owner in the gallery



Read our 'In Conversation' interview with James ahead of the opening of the exhibition 



James is from Braintree, Essex and is studying for a master’s degree in architecture at UCL, London. In the past seven years he has produced more than one hundred typewritten drawings.  To produce his stunning artwork James has nearly thirty typewriters dating from the early 30’s all the way to the late 90’s. Using the typewriters he has produced artwork for celebrities, television presenters and musicians.


James’ work has been featured on ITV's Good Morning Britain, Sky News and BBC News and in other parts of the world such as The Kelly Clarkson Show and The Morning Show Australia.


The exhibition at The Wonky Wheel Gallery in Finchingfield will showcase a collection of James' more recent works, exploring the architectural and historical landmarks of the Essex countryside inspired by where he grew up and has lived during the recent COVID lockdowns.

Wonky Wheel owner Mary Turley commented: "I’m so excited about exhibiting the latest work from James, and it was an honour to go out on location with James to get an insight into how he prepares for his drawings. We have some exciting locations still to be announced and some remarkably interesting buildings as well here in Essex.”

On display will be drawings of Horham Hall, The Moot Hall, Finchingfield Green and a few more still to be announced. All work will be available to purchase from the gallery along with a selection of prints.

You might even see James and his typewriters around Finchingfield and surrounding areas as he works on some of his drawings for the exhibition.

James will be in the gallery on the opening weekend and his vintage typewriters will be on display throughout.
