Illustration is James’ true passion, and with his focus on the ocean he creates artwork that takes the viewer to another place, a realm that, like the ocean, draws you in for life and becomes a part of you.

Creating artwork under the moniker’s DOLSEN & BOUND BY SEA he has quite literally etched himself a thoroughly unique style and in so created artwork that is not only visually stunning but in every sense a tactile experience.

James crafts his unique surfboards using only sustainable plantation Paulownia blanks sourced from the Byron Bay area of Northern NSW Australia. Each board is one of a kind and the artwork that embellishes each one is hand drawn so no two are the same.
