here’s what my clients have said


“I was lucky enough to discover the work of James from decobike when through mutual passions our paths crossed on Instagram. There was no doubt in my mind that I would commission a piece as a surprise for my mother. After introductions and initial discussions via telephone and email I was confident that James was totally on my page and the brief for the commission was issued. My mum has had a lifelong love of cycling, skiing and the mountains and like many of us has a great love for elephants. So that was the brief. I approved the first sketch that James produced and he set to work. The project from inception to completion and delivery was 4 months. James communicated brilliantly all the way through so I knew exactly where we were, that everything was on schedule and we literally were “waiting for the paint to dry” before delivery. The painting was delivered by courier and superbly packaged, I received detailed instructions on how to open the packaging correctly. I don’t actually have the words to express just how happy we are with the end result, the painting is incredible and my mum just can’t stop looking at it. As an endorsement my husband and I will be commissioning our own painting to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary this year.”

Cadence bike shop

“We’ve commissioned James as a craftsman, designer and artist to make the best possible experience for our customers in the shop. His work has varied from interior design on our shop floor and showroom, to designing our logo, staff clothing and signs, to producing large bespoke artwork on canvas and metal. We love our recent branding refresh and we love James too, especially as he travels everywhere by cargo bike!”

The Hill family

“We wanted something a bit different from the normal family portrait that truly reflected the interests of all our family members. We were after something really colourful and bold to make a statement in our home. After speaking with a number of artists we were recommended James at decobike and it instantly felt like the right fit. James designed our portrait based on what our kids told him about their favourite animals, colours, food, clothes and hobbies plus he set it in a landscape similar to our favourite holiday destination. The result is amazing – it’s printed on a large thin metal sheet and the colours have an incredible depth and tone providing a real focal point in our house. We love the finish and the fact that there is no need for a frame, it looks very modern hanging flush to the wall with clean simple lines.”

Mr & Mrs Simmonds

“For the past three years we have known James and he is an exceptional person who has painted our furniture, grandchildren’s chair and table set and other projects which have transformed our house. We know when he starts a job it will be executed to the very highest standard and we have no hesitation in recommending his many talents.”
