Sydney artist James Tucker (b. 1982) started at Julian Ashton in 2007 after drawing for most of his life. Unable to choose one favorite medium to work in James works with almost anything he can get his hands on including clay, watercolours, pencil, pastel, oils and ink. He gets his inspiration from nature and the human form and his desire to share what he finds beautiful. He received the Brett Whiteley Scholarship at Julian Ashton Art School for the year 2010, and was awarded the inaugural George Lambert prize for sculpture in 2008.
