Art in the Aftermath Exhibition

Since March 2018  James has been mentoring Dougie Adams, an ex soldier wounded in Afghanistan, who is now trying to become a professional artist. Dougie is part of a group of ex service personel who are being helped by the charity Style for Soldiers, set up by Emma Willis in 2007. Their work was exhibited at a high profile exhibition ‘Art in the Aftermath’ in Central London in November. Dougie sold all his work and has received numerous commissions. Read more.
