James McGairy has been working as an artist in Guisborough, on the northern edge of the North York Moors, since 1991.

James McGairy

James has used paint in response to this region’s visual splendour, creating paintings that celebrate our landscape. There is a certain northern light that is very subtle, and James strives to reflect these feelings through the paint to convey that sense of place.

His paintings are collected internationally and have won several awards. Take a look at some of his work below and enjoy some of Yorkshire’s most beautiful scenes, and then come and see them for yourself!

‘I search for subjects that inspire, I often look for a ‘light’, for me, this is the key. I often return to familiar places; sometimes I am lucky, and I try to capture this moment. I use photographs as reference, however, I need to spend time at the location. The painting process involves layers of paint, in an effort to achieve depth - I feel my way into paintings. I am continually thrilled by the magical quality of paint.’
