James discovered his talent for creating his amazing pieces of art whilst running
an auto recycling business in Brisbane Australia. His first piece was an off road race buggy, inspired by a
sport James had participated in for some ten years. The response from friends and customers was so positive that he
was encouraged to create more pieces; cars, bikes animals and birds, all of which sold readily.
James likes to incorporate old and interesting car parts into his sculptures.
Nothing is bent into shape; the original integrity of each car part is maintained."The parts themselves are often interesting, some are
asmuch as eighty years old", says James. Nothing is bent into shape; the original integrity
