James Jefferson Peart – Fine Art

I have been an artist from a very early age. I remember being 7, and drawing Concorde on a page of a book that I can not remember. But I do remember drawing Concorde again, (aged 9), and thinking, ‘Wow, I’ve improved’.

Another early memory involved copying drawings from The Beano. I imagined myself as an artist, and drawing for a living. I certainly had big dreams for someone who hadn’t even reached 10 years old!

A primary school teacher once told me, that if I was half as good at maths as I was at art, I would be a very clever boy. Sadly, that never happened. My maths skills did improve though. I sat next to one of the clever kids, and I learnt how to copy him without his, or the teacher’s knowledge.

I did have a drawing published in a comic at the age of 11. My first taste of nationwide fame, and a payment of £5, (plus a hand written congratulatory message from an actual comic artist!).

With this optimism, and recognition, I couldn’t wait to study art at my next school. Aged 11, I was ready to dive into the world of art classes. There was an exciting world of paints, pencils and charcoals to discover. Sadly, at the age of 16, art wise, I was academically a failure. I achieved awful grades, and my teacher explained to me that art wasn’t for me.

I didn’t pick up a pencil, or a paintbrush again, until my late 20’s. It was a guitar I picked up, and I set about making music, with 4 friends from my local town. Sadly, we didn’t make it. But who does? Nevertheless, we had fun writing songs, and playing gigs right up until 1998.

In 1999, I painted a movie still from ‘Betty Blue’. A one off moment of artistic exploration, and an early love of Cobalt Blue.

Then a hiatus of 11 years.

In 2010, I bought a few canvases, a pack of acrylic paints and set about painting images of my own town. By 2011, I had started to amass quite a collection of local scenes. But it wasn’t a difficult decision to decide to branch out and paint studies that I thought were marketable.

I am now either known as the London Underground artist, or the artist that paints women with umbrellas.

Art is a passion, not a qualification.

Redbubble is my store front.

Setting Realistic Redbubble Targets

I set August goals for all my online store fronts. My Etsy, eBay.co.uk, eBay.com and society6 all have their own respective goals, and here at redbubble, my plan is pretty simple. To gain as many organic views as possible. / I rarely promote my work through social networking, as I try to rely on good tags to get my work seen by people that are specifically looking for an art study that I have pro…
