artworks by  James Orr

JAMES ORR was born in Glasgow and now lives in Ayrshire. He has been painting for many years having studied part time at Glasgow School of Art.  He exhibits regularly in the annual Royal Scottish Academy and Royal Glasgow Institute exhibitions.

He is also a regular exhibitor in a number of London galleries where the colour and vigour of his work are seen to mark him out as a distinctively Scottish artist.

He paints in acrylic which ideally suits his style. His paintings are always bold and full of light and colour. Orr is fascinated by the various aspects of the sea around coastlines, and bases his work on the variety of colour found particularly around the coasts of Scotland. They are joyful paintings which celebrate the simple pleasures of life.

His works are held in many private and corporate collections in U.S., Canada, France, Belgium and Hong Kong, including the collection of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
