About James.


My name is James Murch and I am a self-taught artist living and working in Torbay, Devon. I specialise in Portraiture and landscape in oils and make regular trips outdoors to paint En Plein Air. These excursions are a vital part, and form the basis of, larger studio peices.


I have sold work locally and internationally. I rarely enter competitions but my portrait of Luke was short-listed for the Mall gallery portrait exhibitions in 2014 and my painting of Helen won a regional prize in Torquay.


Artwork is available for sale directly from me at my home studio and all work can be veiwed by appointment. I currently favour this arrangment as it makes my artwork much more affordable by cutting the expense of gallery representation.


Please go to the Contact page if you would like to arrange a veiwing of any of my art work, at no obligation.
