Trained at the internationally renowned Charles H. Cecil Studios in Florence, James Hayes is an acclaimed portrait painter who lives and works in London.
Painting exclusively from life, Hayes’ approach relies heavily upon the mastery of natural light, an adept eye for composition and the preparation of his own pigments and canvases. Looking towards the future through eyes imbued with the knowledge of the past, his sitters are immersed in the world of classical portraiture at its best. For enquiries, please get in touch –
