Interviewed by editor Niki Browes, James Hague shares why he always comes back to painting.

Read about his experiences leading up to his successes, including busking and painting on the streets or Paris. Find out why he finds portraits awkward compared to working with life models and why he rarely takes commissions.
Social media has had a “phenomenal” impact on his career. Hear how it’s helped him to promote and sell his work, and how he maintains the balance between creative expression and saleability.
