James Lake is a sculptor who uses the medium of cardboard to create 3D sculptural pieces, props and puppets. 'I have chosen to work with cardboard as my preferred material because I wanted to make sculpture accessible and blur the boundaries between high art and low art.' James believes in 'art for all; art beyond race, gender, age, ability and disability.' James workshops are highly inclusive and accessible.
James believes everyone has the potential to have a strong creative voice using art as a process that breaks down barriers, which allows people to learn from each other, develop new relationships, understandings and bonds.
