Buffalo native, James Bowler, is inspired by nature through his love for birds and the many years spent camping and taking photos. He is a very detail-oriented craftsman, who enjoys many mediums including wood-burning, colored pencils and graphite. He gained mental focus for his refined work by long distance running and biking. This has led him to explore other outlets like graphic design and the installation of artwork. The message of his art work is “just have fun and be active”.
