here’s what my lovely clients have said


“Absolutely brilliant. I commissioned James at decobike designs to create a bespoke piece of art for my nieces and family. He created a fun exercise for them to do listing their favourite things from animals to activities to places (under the guise of a school project so it’d all be a big surprise). He then used their answers to create a truly personal and unique picture that they absolutely love and has scored me some serious cool uncle points. Brilliantly creative, great communication, easy delivery, beautiful finish. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.”

“We love the paintings we have up and want to showcase more colourful prints!”


“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. 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

“I could not recommend James’ work highly enough. We had a picture made to capture avatars of the whole family. It is a real talking piece in the house. Communication was excellent throughout and the process was very straightforward. The finish is excellent, hard wearing and the colours really pop! However, the best part of choosing decobike designs is that we now have a bespoke piece of art that has personal meaning to each one of the family.”

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.”
