James Tytler was born in 1948 in Aberdeen. From an early age James Tytler developed a keen interest in painting which encouraged him to study at Greys School of Art in Aberdeen.
After graduating James Tytler taught art and design to secondary school students around the country. In 1978 James left teaching to pursue his ambition to become a full time artist. Having experimented with several techniques James Tytler soon specialised in the soft medium of pastels, paying great attention to colour and light. James Tytler has been influenced by the subjects and styles of great Victorian painters, with his home city having a particularly fine selection of Pre-Raphaelite and Glasgow School paintings. James Tytler's images in pastel draw us into the nostalgia of childhood fun and games and lazy summer afternoons. And these gentle countryside studies with their warm pastel hues perfectly complement an already outstanding collection.
More recently James Tytler has again started painting images of the South of France and Provence in oils and acrylic. In contrast to his pastels his latest pieces are full of strong vibrant colours and in addition, his new abstract work on canvas and panel is becoming very collectable. Having exhibited in numerous galleries throughout Europe and more recently in America - James Tytler has an enviable and well deserved reputation and a strong following among collectors.
