Biography Early Biography written by John Gilboy James Naughton was born in Bolton, Lancashire, on the 6th May 1971, and apart from his three college years in Leeds and a short spell in America, he has never left. It is from this large provincial northern English industrial town that he began what was to become a most extraordinary career as one of Britain\'s most accomplished and sought after landscape painters. There was nothing in his traditional working class background that would suggest painting as an obvious career choice. He came from a large catholic family, his father a steel-fixer and his mother a shop worker, and James was a twin, the third of five children, all boys.

It is from this large provincial northern English industrial town that he began what was to become a most extraordinary career as one of Britain's most accomplished and sought after landscape painters. There was nothing in his traditional working class background that would suggest painting as an obvious career choice. He came from a large catholic family, his father a steel-fixer and his mother a shop worker, and James was a twin, the third of five children, all boys. As relief from manual work his father would often walk in the countryside around the town with the young James at his side, and these early experiences instilled in the boy a passion for the moors and valleys which were to become the subject of so many of his paintings in later life. School life wasn't particularly easy for James. He had his struggles, particularly with reading, but he made his way through primary school without significant mishap and took his place at Sharples High School. From an early age he spent much of his time drawing. He was good at it and clearly loved it. In those days he took his subject matter from cartoons and films, and made humorous sketches of monsters and characters taken from the childhood comics of the day. He was imaginative and his parents and teachers could see how much enjoyment he got from these activities, and encouraged him. In other subjects Naughton showed average abilities and he knew early on that he was much more visually literate than academic. He enjoyed the sciences, physics in particular, but never displayed special talents in these areas. Now he holds dearly to the view that enjoyment should in itself be a worthy reward for study, and berates the educational system for discouraging and inadvertently failing children by only celebrating and rewarding academic success. Nevertheless Naughton progressed through school with 'A' Levels in Art, History and Sociology, and with his love of drawing still in tact, progressed to the Bolton Institute of Higher Education to do his Foundation Studies in Art https://www.timepiecebuy.org/ Best Replica Watches Swiss Made, Genuine Swiss Movement
