David knew he was on his way to a career in art in some shape and form when he won his first art competition in grade 6. Upon graduation from highschool David took his Art Bursary scholarships and enrolled in art school at VCC, Langara. After graduating in the top of his class he promptly applied his newly honed Graphic Design and Advertising skills working for various firms in the design industry. Since then he has enjoyed a distinguished career as a public art artist and graphic designer winning multiple awards at the local, national and international level for his design work under his design studio, David James Design.
In 2006 David discovered his fine art voice and embarked on a dual career as a designer and visual artist. Drawing upon his graphic design expertise his contemporary mixed media imagery is colourful, insightful, whimsical and at times emotional. Today he splits his time between his graphic design and his fine art work, which resides in private collections.
