On 25th October 2019 I was presented with a Britain in Bloom Young Champion Award by the Royal Horticultural Society in London.
I was asked to create a piece of artwork for our town’s 2019 entry for the Britain In Bloom competition. Please see the quote below from Keith Tordoff MBE, Chair of the Pateley Bridge In Bloom group.
“The artwork James presented to the Pateley Bridge in Bloom group depicts the Bridge over the River Nidd with a wildflower meadow below it. The finished picture is stunning and even more special when you consider the painstaking hours that must have been involved in creating it.
James Owen Thomas is a very talented young artist who I am sure will go on to do great things in the art world.”
