Thyme James_Studio Portrait.jpg

Originally from Cornwall, Thyme James studied Painting and Printmaking at The Glasgow School of Art, during this time she also attended the Academy of Fine Art Vienna on an Erasmus+ Scholarship. In 2019 she was awarded the New Graduate Award from the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts for her degree show. 

Enamoured with colour, mark-making, and repeated imagery, Thyme creates tranquil work exploring memory, connection, and nostalgia through the natural landscape. Working from a combination of field drawings and memory or imagination Thyme blends past, present, and potential futures of multiple locations to produce unique environments, this coupled with her instinctive and cyclical approach to creating allows her landscapes to morph and evolve organically. Her resulting ethereal landscapes aim to find a familiarity within people, identifying with something from their lived experience.
